Chestnut Burr 

Here In this yearbook is a record of the past year at Kent 
State University. 

It is an effort on behalf of 105 staffers making up the 
largest staff in Burr history to tell a story. It is the story of 
you. But it is more than Just that. This Burr is the pictorial 
and written history of a period in your life that will never 
be repeated. 

As the pages unfold before your eyes, we hope that 
you will remember the life here at Kent State University. 
We hope that each time the cover is turned, this school 
year of 1950-51 will begin again with the same vividness 
that it now holds for you.

FREN MUSSELMAN, formerly Dean of Summer Session 
and Extension, devoted 26 years to the University. Since 
1924 he has served as extension professor, associate professor, 
professor of education, and in 1938 became dean. In his 
12 years as head of summer school, Dean Musselman saw 
the total enrollment for these terms exceed 40,000 students. 
He often said that he regretted that, in his administrative 
capacity, he lost some of the teacher-student contact. One 
of the dean's special interests was the entertainment and 
assembly committees, and he brought such personalities as 
Alec Templeton, Jan Peerce, Eleanor Steber and Norman 
Cousins to the campus. F^e also found time to be active in 
Kappa Delta Pi, education honorary and the Wesley Foun- 

MICHAEL J. RADOCK, director of public relations, has 
helped put Kent State University "on the map." When he 
came to KSU in 1945 the Universits' had only a publicir\' 
and news bureau. January 1, 1946 Professor Radock's 
dream became a reality and the public relations office was 
established. Since then the PRO has become a vital part 
of the University. From this office information, news stories, 
pictures and university bulletins are sent to students, news- 
papers, parents, faculty members, other colleges and radio 
stations. Under Mr. Radock's supervision such publications 
as the faculty bulletin, the Alumnus, the parents' bulletin, 
the Campus Calendar, daily news releases, and weekly 
radio releases have been started, many of them published 
for the first time. Besides supen'ising the news bureau 
and the sports publicity staff, Professor Radock also teaches 
se^'cral classes each quarter. 

NINA HUMPHREY has quite a record of service at 
Kent State University; 38 years of her life ha\e been spent 
teaching art to students. I\Iiss Humphrey came to Kent in 
1913, when the school was in its infancy, to be its lone 
teacher of art. She remained as head of the department 
until 1948. Thousands of students remember the infectious 
sense of humor which brightened their art appreciation and 
history of art classes. Many students and townspeople ha\e 
become interested in weaving through Miss Flumphrey's 
enthusiasm in her school weaving classes, private weaving 
classes and women's wea\'ing groups. Weaving has become 
more than merely a hobby with Miss Humphrey; she has 
won prizes for her work at Akron Art Institute salons. 
Jolly and good-natured, she has spent her life encouraging 
student interest in the fme arts. 



With a serenity all its own, the University is here dis- 
played as our photographers saw it in the year 1951. 
In years to come, it will be these scenes that will bring 
a touch of nostalgia to the old grad on Homecoming 
Day. Memories of warm Spring days on the campus 
talking to a pretty co-ed will intermingle with shivered 
thoughts of the "big snow." 

Remembrances of long autumn walks in the spar- 
kling Ohio air will come back, and conversation will 
stop for an instant as a memory threads its way among 
our thoughts. Then, it's lost, and only the afterglow of 
four years of study and frolic remains as a pleasant 
well-remembered period in our lives.

I Stadi 


Memorial Stadium is dedicated to "the memory ot the fi\'e score students oi tiie University who ga\'e their li\es in World 
War II." 

Dedication of the Uni\'ersity Memorial Stadium on October 14, 1950, brought to a climax a dri\e for funds which 
began in 1947 by a committee ol alumni, students, faculty and townspeople. In two years the committee raised appro.xi- 
mately $60,000 with the hope that the Hrst section of permanent seats would e\entually be part of a horseshoe stadium. 

At ceremonies prior to and during the game with Alarietta College, the stadium became an official part of the Uni- 
\ersity. Participating in the dedication ceremonies were the Uni\'ersity R. O. T. C. and the LIni\ersity band. The 
dedication prayer was ofFered by the Rev. Charles V. Ireland. Speakers during the half-time program included Dean 
Raymond E. Manchester, chairman of the dedication program; Mehern W. Randcls, president of the alumni associa- 
tion; Martin L. Davey, Jr., general chairman of the Memorial Stadium committee, and President George A. Bowman. 

The new stadium provides accommodations for 5,600 persons. Topping the structure is a press box, which will 
accommodate 22 members of the press, and three booths for radio and television. Space below the stadium seats is 
a\'ailable for concession stands, public rest rooms and a storage room. Construction on the new stadium was begun in 
the spring of 1950.

Pride of male Unixersity students is the new Men's 
Physical Education building, rated as one of the 
finest in the entire country. 

First occupied October 1. and dedicated Decem- 
ber 2, 1950, the gym was built at a cost of approxi- 
mately Si. 330,000. The east side of the building 
houses varsity athletics while the physical education 
acti\ities are carried on largely on the west side. 

Some 10,000 persons can be accommodated com- 
fortably in the main gym, which provides a regula- 
tion basketball floor and three cross courts. The 
floor is lined for tennis, volleyball and badminton, 
with fittings for gymnastic equipment. 

A si.\-lane Olympic size swimming pool is sep- 
arated from the gym by electrically-operated alu- 
minum doors. For swimming meets, the doors are 
opened, and sections of rollaway seats are moved 
near the pool to provide seats for 1,000 spectators. 

Four large lobbies, each with ticket offices, rest 
rooms and telephone booths; offices for varsity 
athletics and an equipment room are on the main 
floor along with lecture rooms, physical education 
offices, a receiving room, an intramural room, a 
dressing room for instructors, two shower rooms, 
and an office ne.xt to the pool. 

On the second floor are the locker and shower 
rooms for KSLI varsity squads and visiting teams, 
a training room and office, coaches dressing room, 
three handball courts, four shower rooms, a cor- 
rective g)'m, lockers for physical education classes 
and storage rooms. 

A special feature along the corridors is the Kent 
State University Athletic Hall of Fame where 
"Golden Flash" men from the past to the present 
are pictured.

Completion of the new Arts Building marks the 
fifth such unit to be added to the uni\crsity's build- 
ing and expansion program. 

Erected at a cost of $790,000, the completely 
modern and attracti\e building is called by many 
"the embodiment of the latest in scientific and archi- 
tectural design". The first classes were held in the 
new structure winter quarter. 

A special feature of the building is the saw-tooth 
type roof, which proxidcs the maximum amount of 
light for shops and studios. Each studio is illumi- 
nated by indirect lighting and has one wail of tloor- 
to-ceiling windows. Most of the shop equipment 
was transferred from the old industrial arts shop. 

A dust collector was added to the woodworking 

Included on the first floor of the building are 
offices for the faculty of the art and industrial arts 
departments, art gallery, sculpture room, two paint- 
ing studios, a library reference room, a general 
metal shop, machine shop, ceramics shop, areo- 
nautics and woodworking shops, and a 200 seat 
lecture room. 

The second level contains drafting rooms for 
architecture, lettering and graphic arts, rooms for 
art education classes, a commercial art room, and 
two painting studios. 

Construction of the new Arts building was com- 
pleted in fifteen months. No definite plans ha\e 
been made for dedication of the building.

Student Council 

Staggered at the first part of the school year by criticism from 
all sides, Student Council orderly in\estigated itself, appointed 
committees, and go\erned to gain the respect of the entire 
student body. 

Allocations committee in charge of distributing funds for 
uni\ersity activities, was expanded by the addition of four 
faculty members to the live student members. The student 
members were Dave Brand, Ty Merriman, Frank Kelly, Paul 
Bringman, and Colleen Messmore. Parker Voll replaced Ty 
Merriman later in the year. All University budgets were cut be- 
cause of the decreased enrollment. 

Council also initiated a policy of in\cstigation of point 
a\erages by each indi\'idual. During the course of the year 
four high-ranking Council members resigned. Bill D'Alex- 
ander was succeeded by Virginia Vaughn as president. Harry 
Moldovan was elected \ice-president. Ron Rice and Carl 
Vivani also resigned. 

Investigation of the Publications Policy committee showed 
that only one of the four members was a journalism major. 
This committee interviews and decides on all Stater and Burr 
editors. Council decided to interview all applicants for this com- 
mittee before appro\ing their appointment. 

Ninety-three candidates filed petitions for the December 
Council and class elections. A comparati\ely large turnout, 
1,164 voters, elected 24 Blue-Gold representatives, 3 NuK, 
and 1 Independent.

Booster Club 

On the e\e of all home lootbdll games the 
campus glittered with flickering torches carried 
bv members of the Booster club. The brisk fall 
air was full of fight songs and a troop of students 
snaking along behind a band laden truck. 

These rallies were just a few of the (unctions 
of the Booster club. Two dances were held dur- 
ing the fall quarter in an attempt to raise monev 
for the band and for a scholarship gi\en to a 
freshman athlete. 

From its beginning as a small group in 1946- 
47, the club has increased to an organization of 
1500 members. The chief function is to pro- 
mote school spirit and athletics at the LIni\er- 
sity. It also ser\'es as a middle man between the 
University and the Downtown Booster club. 

Other acti\ ities during the \ear aided the 
cheerleaders. 1 he club printed cheers and the 
alma mater and distributed them at the foot- 
ball games to enable unfamiliar freshmen to 
learn the cheers. Also in cooperation with the 
athletic department, the club bought the cheer- 
leaders new uniforms.

Having made great reorganization strides since the 
male-less days of the last war, Men's Union con- 
tinued its policy of growing strong during the past 

Of the twenty members, four are elected from 
each class. Four officers, acting as an adhesive to 
bind the organization together, complete the group. 

Strictly a service organization, the Union strives 
to make the male student a v\'ell-integrated individ- 
ual. One of its most successful programs of this 
type has been the annual beard-growing contest. 
Bringing out the beast in each man, the contest is 
held during the spring quarter. 

A number of \aried acti\'ities decorate the cal- 
endar. In October, AIU celebrated the opening of 
the new football stadium by sponsoring a free all- 
university dance. Later in the football season they 
aired the Kent-New Hampshire game over WKSU- 

To promote closer cooperation among the dif- 
ferent campus groups, MU sponsors a President's 
banquet, which brings together the male executive 
heads of all orgiinizations.

Problems of every description concerning women are han- 
dled by the \^'omen's League, organized in 1923. What- 
e\er the difficulty may be, every Kent coed, as a member 
of Women's League, can find the answer. 

board, which is the functioning section of the league. The 
legislative function of the e.\ecuti\'e board is to pass, revise, 
and formulate rules pertaining to the acti\ities of Llni- 
versity women. 

The league's constitution now proxides for se\'enteen 
members, including a president, a first and second \'ice- 
president, the Dean of Women, publicity chairman. Stu- 
dent Court chairman, \ice-presidents from the women's 
dormitories, commuters and local resident students rep- 
resentati\'e. Additional members come from the Off -Campus 
Women's club, the off-campus house presidents, the Wom- 
en's Athletic Association, Student Council, Pan-1 lellenic, 
YWCA, and the Big-Little Sister council. 

Realizing that hard and fast rules cannot be made to 
apply to all students, the league established Student Court 
to rule on exceptional cases. Together with Women's League 
and other governing bodies. Student Court has set up stand- 
ards to be followed by all LIni\ersity women. 

Socially, the league sponsors the Big-Little Sister tea, 
beld each fall quarter for the purpose of acquainting the 
freshmen. Each year a banquet is gi\en in honor of the 
senior women as part of the social program.

On September 18, 1950, a small radio antenna perched high abo\e Kent hall beamed 
to the outside world the "Community Voice of Kent State LIni\ersity"'. On that day 
another chapter was written in the story of University radio broadcasting. 

Today the voice of WKSU-FM can le heard in an area of approximately 15 
square miles. Striving to inform and entertain its listeners, this station thri\'es on a 
well balanced diet of programs ranging from music to religion. 

The station is entirely student staffed and student operated. Walton D. Clarke 
and John C. Weiser act as faculty supervisors of radio activity. In their hands lies 
the responsibility for the business and financial operation of the station. 

WKSUTM is a broadcasting station, not a training center. Actual rcdio experi- 
ence for those who do not work on the station can be gained at WAKR in Akron, where 
on Saturday mornings from 9:15-9:30, dramatic programs are presented by KSU stu- 
dents. These programs are student v^ritten, directed and acted. 

WKSU-FM regularly broadcasts five days a week from noon to 2 P. M. and from 
5 to 8 P. M. Saturday broadcasts are confined to athletic e\'ents and other occurrences 
of special interest. 

The estimated yearly cost of operating the station is in the neighborhood of $3,000. 

The station can boast of equipment which is second to none. There are two broad- 
casting studios and one master control room. The -smallest of the studios is referred 
to as the announcing studio while the larger one is called the auditorium studio. 

The latest addition to the station is a Lang-Worth transcription library. This outfit 
with its 16 inch discs facilitates the broadcasts of recorded musical shows. 

Seven broadcasting microphones adorn the studios of WKSU-FM. Also included in 
the "assets department" are record filing cabinets. Each record is preserved with its own 
individual jacket. Among the most highly prized possessions of the studio is the tape 
recording equipment. 

The operations of this station are rigidly supcr\ised by the Federal Communica- 
tions Commission.

Daily Kent 

Directed by Editor John Koshar, the Daily Kent Stater of 
the fall quarter led the attack on the illegal seating of 
members of student council. Koshar's scathing editorials 
and overall work in this campaign pro\'ed that he was worthy 
of the American Newspaper Guild trophy which he won 
in 1950. 

Business Manager Guy Shelley provided the funds for 
the paper and directed the work of Ass't Business Manager 
Parker Voll and Advertising Manager Kenyon Hottell. 
Circulation, advertising, both local and national, and print- 
ing contracts occupied most of the time of these men. 

Managing Editor George Way was second in command 
to Koshar and handled much of the University news, 
while Vera Woodburn spent much of her time in the 
slot at the copy desk as copy editor. 

News about rent control and housing problems which 
affected students was handled by John Fowler, public af- 
fairs reporter. 

Gene Alexander covered sports for the fall, which con- 
sisted mostly of football games and intramural news. Pictures 
were taken by Chief Photographer Bill Samaras and Picture 
Editor Bob McMaken.

The winter quarter produced a steady, consistent paper 
under the leadership of Hal Simmonds. 

Featuring more news of interest from other colleges 
around the country, the staff utilized the International News 
Service wire in the public relations office. 

The threat of the draft occupied much of the con- 
versation time of the students and the Stater followed suit 
by publishing editorials, features and inquiring reporter 
articles, and Washington news. 

Sports, especially basketball, took up a great deal of 
space also. The basketball team, ])lus the other sports were 
covered by Sports Editor Joe Durbin and assistant Ernie 

Parker Voll mo\ ed up to the position of business man- 
ager, with Ken Hottell as his assistant. Jo Harper was ad- 
vertising manager. This group and their staff handled the 
accounts of everybody, from the Brady to Batten, Barton, 
Durstine and Osborne. 

One of the consequences of the draft threat was the 
increased prominence of female staff members. Those hold- 
ing leading editorial positions were Merge Choate, Gloria 
Donncllv, Pat Long, Ann Chamberlain and Phvllis Slack.

Dorm Exteriors 

Way back then ue were called Kent Xormal college and 
more women than men attended classes, the administra- 
tion recognized the need in 1911 of dormitory space. 

On May 31. 1911 the Ohio Legislature appro\ed 
$100,000 to be used in the construction of the first 
dormitory on the campus. Lowry hall, completed late 
in 1912, was named for the chairman of the legislati\'e 

As enrollment increased, more dormitories were 
needed. Following appro^•al of bids for the construction 
of Lowr)' and Merrill hall, the state legislature on Oc- 
tober 19, 1911 \'oted funds for Moulton hall and the 
Administration building. Moulton nestles on a sloping 
hill with the beaut}- of the campus in front of it. The 

ball was named for the then president of the board of 
trustees, E. F. Moulton. 

The last women's dormitory to be built was Engle- 
man hall in 1937. Built in the form of a huge "W, 
Engleman was recently connected bv a passageway to the 
Student Union. It was named in honor of J, O. Engle- 
man, president of the uni\erity from 1928 to 1938. 

Stopher hall, the only permanent men's dormitory, 
received its first occupants in the fall quarter of 1949. It 
is the first of four new men's dormitories to be built on 
the hill in the back campus. Erected at a cost of S850,000, 
it was named in honor of Emmet C. Stopher, former 
faculty member and registrar. Terrace Lodge provides 
temporary li\ing quarters for many men.

"Grandmother" of all the dormitories is Lowry Hall, 
home for 135 coeds. Aware that their university home 
was the first to be built on campus, these women were 
determined that the dust of old age would not co\'er their 
social ledger. 

Starting the social wheel spinning, Lowry girls made 
elaborate preparations for the Christmas open house. The 
effort was well spent as guests approvingly observed in- 
terior and exterior decorations of the dorm. 

The long known, but little seen ghosts and goblins of 
Lowry Hall made their appearance at the Halloween 
talent night. Good things to eat were the orders for the 
night, as other talented residents entertained with 
cleverly devised skits. 

Jeans and sloppy shirts were abandoned for a short 
while in February. Femininity was emphasized as the 
Lowry girls held their annual formal in the Union ball- 
room on March 30.

Stopher Hall, representing the largest organized group male 
residents, has tried its hand at becoming social and has added 
much to the campus social calendar. 

The modern cafeteria has served its part also. After the 
trays and dishes were cleared off the tables, the cafeteria 
often assumed a different role. Tables were moved and 
cliairs were pushed aside to make room for couples dancing 
to the music of the latest records. 

Originated by Steve Bizic, the Stopher Hall Christmas 
party for underprivileged children in Kent has become an 
annual event. The children are fed and presented gifts, 
bought with contributions from all of the dormitories. 

Intra-mural and inter-dorm athletics also play a part in 
the life of a Stopher resident. Football, basketball and soft- 
ball teams are regularly entered in intra-mural competition. 
This interest resulted in the winning combination of John 
and Len Pohlod in the 1950 Independent Rowb'oat Regatta. 

Other activities included competition in the Penny Car- 
nival and the Song fest.

Moulton Hall 

Desfe girl luniic Pilhhntr helps fhelma Dcwalt sign in. 

In the glow of burning candles, new oft'iceis were installed 
at Moulton Hall in November to commence the socially 
important part of the school year. 

December was a big month for most of the occupants as 
many worked on decorating the dorm and erecting a ceiling- 
high Christmas tree. The evening's entertainment was com- 
pleted when Santa Claus appeared to bestow his greetings. 

Another traditional Yuletide event at Moulton is the 
caroling work of twenty-five music majors. This talented 
group visited special homes singing favorite hymns of the 
Christmas season. 

Exactly one month after the January Winter Formal, 
activity turned to the Sweetheart Valentine party. A week 
before the party, Moulton girls lavished a "secret sweet- 
heart" with gifts and kindnesses. The identity of the sweet- 
heart was not discovered until February 14. 

Moulton residents displayed originality in their Home- 
coming decorations, and competed for the Independent 
trophy in Campus Day festivities.

Engleman Hall 

Some of the girls watch TV. 

The newest of the women's dorms, Engleman hall is named 
for a former president of the university. 0\'er 200 senior 
women are housed in its "W" shape which is connected by 
a passageway to the student Union where the Engleman 
cafeteria is located. 

The upperclass women are housed in singles, doubles, 
and quads off eight hallways leading from the central 
lounge and reception room. Kitchenettes and laundry fa- 
cilities help provide a better living for the women. 

Engleman Hall is organized with house officers guiding 
it through social and disciplinary matters. Gloria Donnelly 
served as president, Lorie Postlethwaite was ^•ice president, 
Thelma Petno kept the books as treasurer, and Betty Mercer 
and Pat Hooper directed the social acti\'ities. 

Activities included Homecoming decorations, Penny Car- 
nival, Pork Barrel, Campus Day float, open houses, dances, 
parties and the annual Engleman formal.

Blue Key 

Blue Key, a national honor fraternity, is not just for the scholar, not just for the leader, but for men who are 
both, and participate in numerous activities. Founded locally in 1933, Blue Key has three basic principles upon 
which membership is granted, scholarship, character, and leadership and ability. 

The organization is composed of independent and Greek leaders on campus and serves as an adjunct to 
the Uni\ersity. Its purpose is to perpetuate the belief of God, stimulate an ambition for attainment, and study 
student problems and student life to further the best interests of both the student and the institution. 

This year the fraternity took part in several acti\'ities beyond their usual work. They were one of the 
leaders behind the World Student Service Fund dri\e and they directed the Freedom Bell signature campaign. 

Annually, they co-sponsor with Cardinal Key, the Penny Carnival, one of the leading events of the 
winter quarter. Also, they publish the Student Directory. This directory is one of the most used booklets of 
information on the entire campus. Numerous organizations use it for reference and numerous men use it for 
date information. 

Blue Key also awards an annual scholarship to a student at the University. 

Present officers are Guy Shelley, president; Tom Drouillard, vice-president; Dan Miller, secretary; and Ted 
Chernak, treasurer. Members for the organization are tapped in the fall and the spring after making application.

Cardinal Key 


A desire to serve the uni\ersity is the chief purpose of Cardinal 
Key, a national service honorary for women. Composed of 
women of varied interests, this organization is one of the 
leaders at the university. 

Cardinal Key, in all of its work and aeti\ities, stri\es 
toward prudence, justice, temperance, and fortitude. 

Several of the leading University traditions are sponsored 
by the Cardinalites. Along with Blue Key, they sponsor the 
Penny Carnival and Campus Day and devote much time to 
making this day a success. 

In order to provide parents an opportunity to meet with 
each other, the group organized Family Day. On this day 
parents are in just as much evidence as are students. 

Cardinal Key also sells campus scene Christmas cards each 
year. These cards contain a picture of the campus along with 
the usual holiday greeting. They also sponsor an Easter egg 
hunt for the children of Kent. 

At the end of the year on Scholarship day. Cardinal Key 
gives a trophy to the outstanding woman graduate of the year. 

To qualify for membership in Cardinal Key a woman 
should have high scholarship, be active in several campus or- 
ganizations, and be of high character.

Concert Band 

During the fall of 1938 the first women's band was organized 
as a concert band. It played for the annual homecoming play 
during the fall term, and gave a joint concert with the men's 
band in the winter quarter. 

The women and men have their own officers and main- 
tain their own individuality during the football season. How- 
ever they combine throughout the winter and spring quarters 
to form an 80-piece concert band. 

Individual meetings for the men and women are held 
weekly during the concert season for rehearsal and business. 
Acting as two independent groups, the bands rehearse inside 
and drill occasionally outside in preparation for the spring 
quarter Campus day. During the Campus day celebration 
they play together as a concert band for an outdoor concert 
and later in the day are split up as separate bands to march in 
the all-University parade. 

The concert band is a well balanced musical organiza- 

tion under the direction of Professor Roy D. Aletcalf. Each 
year three formal concerts are presented on Campus. One of 
the outstanding compositions that has been presented is the 
complete Fauchet symphony Suite in E flat. 

In addition to giving concerts in northeastern Ohio cities 
throughout the year, the concert band dedicates one concert 
annually to the high school musicians in this section of the 
state. The concert band plays the required high school state 
contest numbers during this concert. 

Tele\'ision appearances were made on WEWS in Cle\'e- 

Officers for the Women's band are: Alice J. Hoover, presi- 
dent; Adelaine Metcalf, vice president; Virginia Shively, secre- 
tary; and Wilma Ellenberger, treasurer. 

In the Men's band the officers are: Roland Gamble, presi- 
dent; Ray Bliss, vice president; Gerald Dallesandro, secretar)^ 
and Mvron Dovlc, treasurer.

Civic Orchestra 

From an obscure beginning in 1938, the Kent Ci\'ie Orchestra has expanded 
from year to year to an extent that today it is recognized as one of the out- 
standing musical groups in the vicinity. Organizer and director was Kenneth 
Byler, now with the Lawrence Conservatory College of Music in Wisconsin. 

When first organized, the orchestra was composed chiefly of players 
from the Kent community environs. To this nucleus, there was added from 
time to time University students. Since the war, the organization has not 
been reactivated as such, but a large number of its former members have 
joined forces with students from the university. Holding weekly rehearsals, 
they have adopted the name of the Kent State University Civic Orchestra. 

In recent years they ha\'e joined forces with the A Cappella Choir and 
Chorus in presentations of Handel's "Aiessiah," and Bach's "St. Matthew 
Passion play." Coupled with this work, each year se\'eral programs are 
presented featuring the full string orchestra, together v\'ith se\eral soloists. 

While most of the civic members are amateur players, who engage in 
instrumental work as a hobby or as a leisure time pursuit, there are also a 
number of music teachers among the members. 

Recently coming under the direction of Louis P. Krch, the current 
orchestra, though aspiring to symphonic proportions, is limited in part by 
demands for long rehearsals in preparation for the large and intricate choral 
presentations. However, the chief difficulty lies in the extreme absence of 
accomplished string players available in the community area as well as in 
the student body of the university. 

The wind and percussion instruments usuallv number twentv plavers, 
but on occasions these have been increased with other players. Presently 
the strings consist of eight first \iolins, six second \iolins, six \iola, three 
cello, and two bass.

A Cappella Choir 

Caro Carpetyan has again led the A Cappella Choir to the 
rank of a superior college musical organization achieving the 
heights of musical interpretation. With a group of 85 students, 
selected after competitive tryouts, he shaped and molded a 
body of individuals who act as a unit. The choir was impressed 
with the notion that the singer should get as much, if not more, 
out of a song as the audience did. 

This group does not remain Kent's exclusive property, 
but throughout the year travels to local churches, participates 
in several radio programs, and this spring toured Pennsylvania, 
New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. This vear the 

choir also sang at the Riverside church, New York city in 

During the fall quarter, two concert appearances were 
made, one in the Cleveland Public auditorium in October 
before a convention crowd of o\-er 10,000 Northeastern Ohio 
teachers. The other program was presented to the Ohio Music 
Educators association in Akron, in December. 

As in past years, the choir formed the nucleus of the 
choral forces for the presentation of the annual Messiah pro- 
gram on December 10. Holiday festi\'ities included the presen- 
tation of Bach's Oratorio and Bach's St. Matthew Easter passion

The Chestnut Burr is puWished annually by the student body 
of Kent State University under the authority of the Student Gov- 
ernment Association and the University Publication Policy Com- 
mittee. Fi\'e thousand copies are printed and then distributed 
to all students holding activity cards for the three quarters. Over 
1500 pictures and uncounted yards of copy go to the makeup. 
The quantity of yearbooks printed is greater than any other 
university in Ohio. 

Last year, the Chestnut Burr was granted a First Class 
Honor rating by the judging of the National Scholastic Press 
association in colleges of over 5000 students with a letter press 

This edition of the Chestnut Burr began back in March, 
1950 when the Publications Policy committee met to determine 
who would be the new editor and the new business manager of the 
Chestnut Burr. In April, 1950 Murray Campbell was chosen 
to serve as the editor and Theadore E. Chernak was chosen 
as the business manager. 

Work was begun in the spring quarter of 1950 by the busi- 
ness staff as contract applicants for the printing, engraving and 
covering the book were interviewed. Bids were received, decided 
upon, and contracts were signed with the Heer Printing Co., 
the Indianapolis Engraving Co. and the Mueller Art Cover and 
Binding Co. 

Throughout the year, the business staff made out the vouch- 
ers and requisitions, planned budgets, ordering supplies, and 
handled the general run of managing some S25,000 in student 
activity funds and page sales. During the fall quarter, the ad- 
\'ertising staff went into swing to pull commercial ads and sell 
pages to organizations. During the winter quarter, the master 
index for identifications and distribution was prepared from the 
university lists. The grand finale was the distribution of the 1951 
Chestnut Burr in May. 

Larry Marchesano filled the duties of being assistant to 
the business manager, Ed Core did the pushing as advertising

manager, Marge Molnar handled the letter end, while Betty 
Peiffer was the office secretary, and Steve Bizic sold over half of 
the commercial advertising. 

On the Editorial side of the staff, Sol P. Baltimore was 
appointed as the associate editor during the spring quarter, and 
plans were laid for the formation of the yearbook and yearbook 
staff. Section editors were appointed: Leo Damore as highlights 
editor, Pat Long as organizations editor, Don Blum as activity 
editor, Ralph Orche as fraternity editor. Lis Overstreet as pro- 
duction manager and Jerry McFadden as sports editor. The first 
makeup of the 1951 yearbook was drawn up, and photogs began 
to take pictures of spring activities. 

By the fall quarter, Dick Rice, art editor, had the cover 
design to the manufacturers. Senior pictures were taken and 
mounted. Artists started submitting drawings. For the first time, 
fraternity pictures were taken as single groups. Bob Twigg started 
on Greek pin reproductions. Edward L. Cliney became picture 
editor, and the engravings started on the way to production. Four 
valuable photogs were added to the staff: Palil Hulstrand, Jim 
Priest, Ron Moscati, and Earl Swaney. Staff organizational 
meetings were held. Lis Overstreet became jack of all trades 
by becoming production manager, class editor, and sorority editor 
at various times. Copy started to roll in for the final assembly 
into signatures. 

Throughout the v\inter quarter, the 9 by 14 Chestnut Burr 
office in the rear of the R.O.T.C. building was humming. The 
cover was finished in March. Copy kept coming in and so did 
engraver's proofs. During the final weeks of winter quarter, Sol 
P. Baltimore was busy assembling the copy, dummy, and pic- 
tures into shape to send to the printer. First printer's proofs were 
received at the beginning of spring \acation and last was sent 
back by the beginning of the spring quarter. 

Whenever work was done. Jack Stickel, layout chief, and 
Jim Butler, layout editor could always be found. The original

Jo David, getting all copy in the final shape. 

Pleasure was not denied to the staff members. Three went 
to the Associated Collegiate Press con\'ention in Chicago during 
the fall quarter, where Sol P. Baltimore was a speaker. The 
Chestnut Burr Queen, Marry Elaine Long, was chosen during 
the winter quarter. Her attendants were Jane Klee, Avis Pinney, 
and Marietherese Burr. The annual Publications Banquet was 
held in the Mayflower Hotel as a climax in a successful year in 
publications. There, m.embers of the staff received gold, silver, 
and bronze keys for service, and special awards were handed to 
those who were outstanding in journalism and photography.

Graduate School 


Perhaps one of the least publicized departments of the Uni- 
ersity is the Graduate school. The school is under the 
executi\e leadership of Dean Raymond AI. Clark, but is 
directed bv the Graduate council of which President Bow- 
man is chairman. 

Degrees can be obtained in practically all subjects reg- 
ularly taught here, except music, journalism, philosophy 
and home economics. 

Requirements for admission include a degree from the 
University or any accredited institution, a point a\'erage 
of 2.5, and a major or minor degree in the field of work 

The student must complete 48 hours of work, divided 
into 40 hours of class study, and 8 hours of thesis work for 
the Master of Arts and the Master of Business Administra- 

tion degrees, and 48 hours of class work only in the field of 
education. Before the student is awarded his degree, he must 
first take an oral e.xamination and appear before an exam- 
ining board appointed by Dean Clark. 

Established in 1935 by the state legislature, the school 
first offered the Master of Arts degree only. In September, 
1949, the Uni\'ersity made it possible for students to obtain 
degrees in Business Administration and Education. 

Since the first 4 degrees issued in 1936, the number has 
increased to 141 in 1950. The total granted now stands at 

Ther-e are now 420 students enrolled in the Graduate 
school including 96 women and 294 men. One hundred 
and ninety-seven students attend regular day classes while 
223 students are enrolled in night and Saturday classes. 

Dean of the Graduate School Dr. Raymond M. Clark has spent 37 years of his life in 
the teaching profession, and has been at Kent State uni\'ersity 25 years. 

He began his teaching career in a small rural school following graduation from high school, 
and entered Ohio university' where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in education in 

Dr. Clark came to Kent in 1925 as a member of the summer faculty, and in 1926 became 
a professor of psychology. During 1943-44 he was acting president of the Uni\'ersit>', and was 
named director of the graduate school in 1947. 

His degrees include M.A., Columbia university, (1923), and Ph.D., X^'estem Reserve 
university (1933).

THE PSYCHOLOGY CLINIC, directed by Dr. Charles 
N. Winslow, offers free mental hygiene service to all 
students of Kent State university, their husbands, wives, 
and children. 

Besides offering assistance on vocational, educational, 
social and personal adjustment, the function of the clinic 
is to provide an opportunity for internship training of 
psychology students and graduate students. 

THE SPEECH and HEARING CLINIC serves a three- 
fold function, after instituting its present progam in the 
fall of 1945. Under the direction of Professor J. R. 
Montgomery, the clinic's primary purpose is to train 
speech and hearing therapists by pro\iding them with the 

opportunity of actually administering clinical service to 
persons with speech or hearing difficulties. There are 
more than 70 students majoring in this field. 

THE READING CLINIC, under the direction of Dr. 
Leslie W. Garnett, professor of English, strives to help 
college students improve their reading habits, and also 
understand what they read. 

Instructor Claude Colvin teaches students how to 
study and how to concentrate on their studies effectively 
and economically. Four basic lessons are given to the stu- 
dents, most of whom come to the clinic voluntarily, and 
the problems of organizing, e\'aluating and remembering 
ideas are brought out.

Professor Gerald P. Chapman. 

To be a black-robed grad is the ambition of every KSU student. This 
year nearly 900 seniors reached that coveted goal. Under the able 
guidance of Professor Gerald P. Chapman, who has served as senior 
advisor for the past ten years, the class sponsored three traditional social 
events. These included a picnic, luncheon, and dance— all of which 
were held during graduation week. Officers of the class are Vincent 
Herst, president; Sandy Weiss, vice-president; Carol Orlikowski, secre- 
tary; and John Ballenger, treasurer. 

The "51'ers" have seen a host of changes on campus since their 
dink-bedecked frosh days. Little did they dream of the magnificence of 
the Men's Physical Education building, or the streamlined convenience 
of the Practical Arts building. These, along with many other additions 
and improvements to "Ohio's most beautiful campus," were just "a 
gleam in the architect's eye." The world in which those freshmen first 
came to KSU was one of postwar immaturity; of hope for an infinity 
of peace. 

Those young hopefuls are now the "wisemen" of the campus. 
They are the ones who know what college really is. Anyone of them 
can tell you that it's just as important to spend an hour over a cup of 
cofi^ee in the Union as it is to worry over finals. They'll tell you, too, 
that it's not always the class "brain" who ends up making a million; the 
fellow who is always the party clown often ends up in this position. 
Just ask any senior. He knows. 

Yes, it's a far cry from a dink to a mortar-board. And the grads of 
1951 can rightfully be proud as they march to commencement on June 
9. They really know the ropes now, and the world is theirs to conquer.

Top: Mark Common, treasurer; Shelly Pressler, vice-president. 


Past the neophyte stage and rapidly approaching their Final year— 
their big year— the junior class struggled against draft laws and 
dwindling enrollment during the past three quarters. E^'cn though the 
male element of the class was confused as to the question of enlistment, 
the class organized and held traditional functions. 

The biggest of these affairs, of course, was the Junior-Senior Prom 
held in May. A gift from the juniors to the seniors, it was a dance ex- 
celled by none for its beauty and sentimentality. 

Other functions of the class were a Pop Ball held in the spring 
quarter in honor of the most popular man and woman on campus and 
a February class party. 

Officers of the class were chosen in the No\ember elections. Pre- 
med Howard Fagan was elected president and led the class throughout 
the year. Shelley Pressler, a pre-law student, was picked as vice- 
president, while correspondence and meeting notes were taken care of 
by Joan Milford, elementary education major. Another pre-law student, 
Mark Common was treasurer, and collected and budgeted the class 

Despite the rush of outside activities, the members of the class of 
'52 ha\'e decided on their major and minor sequences and are realizing 
that their graduation is not too distant. With this fact in mind, they are 
striving to equip themseb'es adequately to find a secure and worthvs^hile 
place in life.

As they participated in their second year of uni\ersity acti\'ities, 
members of the class of 1953 showed everyone that they were qualified 
to take over the duties of last year's seniors and others who had left 
KSU. The sophomores, more polished and experienced than they were 
in their freshman year, were eager to assume the campus positions and 
duties of departed students. 

Of these sophomores who are looking forward to graduation from 
Kent, it is difficult to jucfge how many will be here in 1953. Many of 
the men ^\'ill be called to the armed forces. 

Aside from settling down to choosing their major fields, another 
factor distinguishes sophomores. At last they are no longer ■ the 
"greenies, " and they can't gi\'c the excuse, "How should I know? I'm 
new around here! " 

Jim Cuppy, chosen by the sophomores to be their president, is a 
member of Kent's varsity basketball squad. He is from Sa\annah, Ohio. 

Vice-president of the class is Sandi-)o Kohls, a speech major from 
Cleveland. Sandi-jo appeared in several Uni\ersitv Theater produc- 
tions, and has her own radio program over WKSU-FM, 

Mary Jo Ellis, from Steuben\'ille, Ohio, is secretary. Mary Jo is a 
member of the Kindergarten-Primary Club. 

A W'estlake, Ohio graduate, Paul Spencer, is treasurer of the class. 
Paul is also a member of the Booster club.

"Dink frosh, dink," is the cry that echo's across the campus directed at 
the ears of the poor, bewildered freshman. 

First came freshman week with dances, plays, tests, and health 
check-ups. They soon learned the main points of interest; the Student 
Union, the Brady, the library and various classroom buildings. 

After the beginning of regular classes, the Frosh delved into the 
\arious activities in which they were most interested. Some into 
dramatics via the Freshman play "Seven Keys to Baldpate." Others, 
more athletically inclined, turned to the freshman squads, and some 
students even decided to pay a little attention to their studies. 

Moulton Hall, the residence hall reser\'ed exclusively for freshman 
girls carried on its tradition of orientating the girls to life in a dorm and 
on a college campus. 

The freshman boys who lived in Stopher Hall were determined to 
catch the greased pig to end hazing for the year. On a Saturday after- 
noon in November they adjourned to the practice football field, and 
after a long, hard battle managed to corral the slippery porker. They 
then could forget that they were just lowly freshmen; fair bait for an 

Elections, which were held a week late because of the great snow, 
finally took place. The officers elected were: Pat Campbell, president; 
Ted Klopfmen, vice-president; Marjorie Clark, secretary; and Ahce 
Wilhelm, treasurer. 

Student council representatives from the frosh ranks were Connie 
Alter, Marilyn Beifuss, Stan Bober, and George Dickie. 

Men's Union collected Vernon Ball, Jim Lehner, Jerry Frazier and 
Jim Calat. 



A home awav from home are the dormitories for more than 1,000 students who li\e on campus. Freshman girls call Moulton 
hall their home, sophomore coeds li\e in Lovvry hall, junior, senior, and graduate women reside in Englemen hall, while 
the men li\e in Stopher hall and Terrace lodge. 

Sinole rooms make up most of Engleman hall, named for a past president of the University. Its residents are allowed 
more freedom, commensurate with their standing as upperclass women. Weekly one o'clock permits are gi\en to the 235 
coeds, but the dash to the door is still seen, even among these old hands. 

Lovvry hall houses sophomores, with a sprinkling of freshman, junior and senior women. The dining rooms at Lowr}' 
serve the Moulton hall girls, and the off-campus students who congregate on weekdays for meals. 

Eager freshman girls are the residents of Moulton hall. Located at the far end of the campus, it necessitates a long run 
home for one of the 270 frosh coeds who momentariU forgets about the 10:30 p.m. curfew. Lights go out at 11:30, the 
only dorm that has this rule. 

Double and triple rooms are found in Stopher hall, where men hom lowly frosh to graduate student li\e. Starting 
last year, sign-in requirements went into effect, enabling women students to tlndw a few gleeful jibes at their friends in 
Stopher hall. 

Terrace lodge is a collection of army barracks that serx^e as a temporary home for mans men.

Photography Short Course 

Engleman hall acquired a masculine air from March 21 to 
24, 1950 when 300 press photographers and editors gathered 
from various states to attend the ninth annual press photog- 
raphy short course. 

Gaining national recognition as the best of its kind, the 
four day seminar was founded as an opportunity for photog- 
raphers and editors to learn new methods of photography 
and to exhibit their work. 

Together with the short course, a photo contest was 
held with more than 1,000 entries displayed in the Union, 
competing for prizes in several different categories. 

Among the students and speakers present was Frank 
Luther Mott, dean of the journalism school of the Uni- 
versity of Missouri, who was the guest speaker, and also in- 
stalled the Chi chapter of Kappa Alpha Mu, national photo 
journalism honor fraternity. 

Also present were Jacob Deschin, managing editor of 
U. S. Camera magazine; Bob Dumpke, chief photographer 
of the Milwaukee journal; and Fred Kildow, director of the 
Associated Collegiate Press, University of Minnesota. 

The highlight of the course was an inspiring speech 
by Harn' Shigeta, of Shigeta-Wright studios, Chicago, who 
talked on "Photographic Composition" and displayed his 
prize winning prints taken o\'er 25 years. At the end of his 
fine speech and stirring demonstration, the assembly rose 
and gave him a prolonged ovation, the only one in Short 
Course history.

School for Husbandi 

Presented as a musical, Molier's "School for Husbands" was 
the best of the LIni\'ersitv Theatre season. Directed by 
Professor G. Harry Wright, it was a thoroughly light- 
hearted, tongue-in-cheek production. The play afforded four 
graduating seniors. Lea Baumann, Ernie Mauer, Bob Wal- 
lace and Ed Hallas, a fine \-ehicle in which to gi\'e their 
farewell performance. 

Ernie Mauer was outstanding as Sgnanarelle, an old 
spiteful guardian who plans to marr\' his sweet ward, plaved 
by Norma Remmv. Although he keeps her locked iji his 
home, she falls in love with a gay blade who li\es across 
the street, conveniently enough, played by Bob Wallace. 
Through intrigue master-minded by the ser\-ants of the 
young couple, played e.xpertly by Catherine Arnold and 
Ed Hallas, the two lovers are finally united in a hilarious 
marriage ceremonx . 

But the scene that stole the show was a ballet produc- 
tion number led bv Lea Bauman and Nancy Hise. 

A small but excellent pit orchestra proxided appropriate 
background music for the songs and choreography.

Do you like to pitch pennies, ring girls necks 
(with leis), use legs for a ring-toss, squirt 
candles, paste a pledge, or drown Ben Appel 
with a bucket of water? 

Those who do enabled concessions at the 9th 
annual Penny Carnival, March 31, 1950, to earn 

Evidently folks prefer to throw leis, squirt 
candles and pitch pennies, for those were the 
winning concessions. iXloulton hall won the 
trophy in the independent division with their 
"Ready, Aim, Squirt" booth. Kay E\'ans, Alar- 
lene Adams and Alice Hills served as pretty 
backdrops for the candles. Runner up in this 
division was Engleman hall. 

Gamma Phi Beta's Hawaiian concession drew 
eager students and faculty to throw leis around 
the shapely necks of Phyllis Jones, Frankie 
Mathis and Jackie Burrell. They took top honors 
in the sorority division while /\lpha Xi l^elta 
placed second. 

"Platter Splatter," a penny pitch run by Delta 
Upsilon won the fraternity competition with 
second place taken by Phi Gamma Theta. 

Various side shows included selling benefit 
tickets on cigarettes, slip-disc jockey Pat VVhit- 
mer. Spike Jonesin' it, and a Gay Nineties photo 
booth manned by Chi Pi. 

Funds taken at this year's carni\al will go 
towards establishing a scholarship fund. The 
event is co-sponsored by Blue Key and Cardinal 
Key, campus men's and women's service

Campus Day 

Escorted by sash wearing Delta Upsilpn iraternit\ 
who chose her, the "K" girl started the 1950 Campus 
Day frolicing by painting the "K" behind Rockwell 

And shortly after noon, Joan Fiocca, president of 
Cardinal Key, presented Virginia Vaughn, to the 
assembled throng as the May Queen. While the 
crowd applauded. Student Council President Bill 
D'Alexander performed the coronation ceremony. 1 he 
queen, and her two attendants, Sally Koch and Mary 
Hoover, with the rest of the court, presided while the 
dancers wove the Alay Pole in time honored rites. 

Soon after the coronation, the float parade got under 
way led by the twin marching bands. The independ- 
ent groups came first, followed by the fraternities and 

Sigmadelta club captured first place, while the 
Chialpha club placed second in the independent 

Sigma Nu, with its smoke spouting sidewheel steam- 
boat took top honors among the fraternities, with Phi 
Kappa Tau second and Delta Tau Delta third. 

Their horse drawn carousel cinched first place for 
Delta Gamma sorority followed by Alpha Xi Delta. 
Chi Omega was third.

In the e\'ening by the twiHght, you could hear the 1950 
songfest get under way, only to have to move into the 
auditorium because of the month early April showers. 
(But no sooner had the fraternity boys started to sing 
when the rain stopped.) Bob Hampton, master of cere- 
monies, soon got things organized and the crowd settled 
down to hear the fine voices. 

Ken Siebenaller directed the American Commons Club 
to a first place in the independents division. They gave 
an excellent rendition of the "Lord's Prayer." 

Delta Upsilon, led by Terry Atkinson, sang their way 
into first place with "Were You There?", followed by 
second place Delta Tau Delta. 

Sorority honors were taken by Delta Gamma, singing 
"You'll Never Walk Alone," with Alpha Xi Delta settling 
into second with "Cindy." 

May Queen Ginny "Vaughn and her two attendants 
reigned over the Campus Night dance held in Will's gym 
to the music of Ray Anthony's orchestra. Queen Ginny 
presented trophies to the winners of Songfest and the 
float parade, and in turn received gifts from her sorority, 
Alpha Phi; the student council, and the Inter-Fraternity

proved he was the choice of his fellow students by an o\'erwhelming 

Jim, a member in good standing of the "Brady brigade", was 
president of Alpha Phi Beta and the Inter-Fraternity council during 
his senior year. He is a native of Cleveland. 

Most Popular Woman 

Gretchen Rader, glamour girl, socialite and queen of Sigma Nu's 
Scummers Hop hails from Niles. "Fetchen" Gretchen, as her sorority 
sisters campaigned her, and ably too, is no beginner as far as beauty 
and politics are concerned. 

Her Chi Omega sisters called her "Stretch," and so did the 
people who elected her to Junior class treasurer. She is also a mem- 
ber of the Booster club and the Pan-Hellenic council.

Rowboat Regatta 

With an "I-Don't-Care-If-the-Sun-Don't-Shine" attitude, 
Mollylou Benduie, Rowboat Regatta queen, awarded 
tiophies to the drenched winners. June 3, 1950, just wasn't 
the day for Kent's 10th annual take-ofF on the eastern col- 
lege affairs. 

Mary Hoover and Phyllis Young, rowing for Delta 
Gamma repeated last year's performance by again taking top 
honors in the sorority division. Ben Steele, a one-man team 
from Sigma Nu, covered the half-mile distance at Sandy 
lake ahead of all the other fraternities with Bill Casey, 
another one-man entry, from Delta Tau Delta, not far 

Stoper Hall's first entry in the Regatta sped to first 
place in the independent division. Two brothers, John and 
Leonard Pohlod, heaved their way to the finish line just a 
slight distance ahead of the Chialpha club. 

The efforts of Jerry Mekler, regatta chairman, and those 
who assisted were dampened by the downpour, and all the 
events other than the races and queenship judging were 
called off. 

Al Newman, announcer of the race, and Gene Mekler, 
race spotter, kept up with the pattering of the rain while 
Gene Harrison got the races off on scheduled time. 

Mollylou, a Chi Omega sponsored sophomore was 
awarded her trophy by John Koshar, managing editor of 
the Daily Kent Stater. She was chosen from a field of 20 
outstanding candidates by three judges, whose powers of 
selection and vision was not hampered by the liquid 

Mollylou Bendiire with her trophy.

Vaughn Monroe 

The \'aughn Monroe show, sponsored by Theta Kappa Phi 
fraternity brought a two and a half hour revue to fill Wills 
gym May 15, 1950. Monroe's effortless baritone pleased 
the audience, but the musical highlight of the show was 
concert-master Earle f lummel who contributed his excellent 
^■iolin playing to "Shoemakers Dance," and "Valse Bluette." 

"Mule Train," Monroe style, got the revue off to a 
fast start, followed by a combination harmonica-accordion- 
horn player who succeeded in pleasing the audience as well 
as showering them with powder and confetti. 

Vocalist Ziggy Talent screamed his way through his 
well known rendition of "The Maharajah of Magidore," 
and a few other ear-drum splitting numbers. 

On the non-musical side of the entertainment, the 
spotlight was definitely on Jay Lawrence who had the 
people in the palm of his clever hands with his take-off on 
a prizefight and a day in the life of a pri\'ate eye. 

Four pretty young ladies called the Moon Maids con- 
tributed their specially styled songs, and one of them, called 
Tinker, played several pieces very capably on the piano. 

A dancer also high-kicked her way across the stage to 
round out the evening's entertaining show.

Following a hectic week of picnics, rehearsals, parties, 
dances and celebrations the class of 1950 took a last quick 
glance around the campus and walked into Wills Gym on 
Saturday, June 10. Over eleven hundred rccci\cd degrees, 
the largest graduation class in the histor)' of Kent State 
university. A great improvement o\'er the first graduation 
class of twenty-seven. 

From the College of Education, three hundred and ninety 
were graduated; the College of Liberal Arts, three hundred 
and thirty-eight; the College of Business Administration 
graduated three hundred and forty-two. 

Thirteen of the graduating class received their degrees 
summa cum laude, twenty-five magna cum laude, and forty- 
two cum laude. 

Twenty-nine Master of Arts degrees were awarded from 
the Graduate school. 

Dr. Carl Frederick Wittke, dean of the Graduate school 
of Western Reserve university addressed the graduates at

On September 19, approximately 1400 "frosh" 
began to undergo the tortures of Freshman Week. 
Comparatively young and innocent, these young 
men and women unknowingly walked into a week 
which was to lea\e them bewildered and slightly 
lost, but with some beneficial experience. 

The Freshmen entered into a whirlwind of place- 
ment tests, conferences, physical examinations, 
tours, lectures, and many more preliminaries to 
campus life. To add to their joys, they were issued 
"dinks" and name cards, a new inno\'ation. They 
diligently scrubbed the seal with toothbrushes and 
doffed their caps as a humble salute to the mighty 

Various social get-togethers were scheduled for 
Freshman Week. On faculty night, the students got 
acquainted with their instructors and their hus- 
bands and wives. They met Pres. George A. Bow- 
man and his wife at a tea in the president's home. 
The students got acquainted with one another dur-

The annual Big and Little Sister tea was held on October 15 in 
the afternoon in JMoulton music room. The freshies were recei\'ed 
by Dean Ada Hyatt, Mrs. George Bowman, Mrs. Margaret Swan- 
son, and the officers and members of the Women's League, who 
sponsored the annual e\ent. 

Tea was served and Mrs. Mary McCampbell and Mrs. 
Eleanore Lallance poured. Co-chairwomen for the affair were 
Mary Long and Jan McGarr. Fall flowers decorated the tables 
and Maryelyn Yount played several selections on the harp. 

LIppcrclasswomen graciously chatting with the freshmen 
made them feel at home at Kent State and took a big step in inte-

With vegetable corsages in e\ idcnce and a cold, cold, noith

club appeared again this year. Because of the success of the 
first TVVIRP Night, introduced last year, it was decided that 
it was to become an annual e\ent. 

An inter-sorority football game between Alpha Phi and 
Alpha Gamma Delta at half-time provided many thrills and 
spills, with Alpha Phi emerging victorious on a touchdown by 
"Tiger"- Maglione.

Nearly 7000 fans cheered Kent on to a 19-6 victory over the 
Bowling Green Falcons at the Homecoming game. The en 
thusiastic students, guests, and alumni turned out to watch the 
Golden Flashes beat the Falcons for the first time in four years, 
which entitles Kent to keep the painted football until they are 
beaten by the Falcons. This "painted pig" was the ball which 
was used at the first football game between Bowling Green 
and Kent. Dick Pitts, Bob Pease, and Nick Dellerba made the 
scores for Kent, two of them on passes by Pitts and Jack 

At haiftime, Pat Petersen was crowned queen by Student 
Council President Bill D'Alexander. The queen and her two 
attendants, Carol Stilenbauer and Vinnie Mittiga, were ac- 
companied by an honor guard composed of members of the 
Scabbard and Blade honor fraternity. 

President Bowman spoke a few words of welcome to the 
alumni and other guests. 

In the e\'ening, the University Theatre closed its three 
day run of "Goodbye My Fancy", starring Phyllis Phillips and 
Bill Zucchero. 

A record crowd danced to the music of Louis Prima and 
his orchestra in the new Physical Education building. At 
intermission. Queen Pat Petersen presented the "painted pig" 
to Bob Pease, captain of the football team. The queen then 
presented the awards to the winning organizations in the house 
decorations contest. Although the rain hampered the decorators. 
there were many splendid exhibitions. Kappa Sigma and Alpha 
Phi took top awards in the fraternity and sorority divisions, 
while in the independent men and women's divisions, the 
American Commons club and Mrs. Clark's residence were in 
first place. Phi Beta Phi, Chi Omega, Engleman hall, and 
Sigma Delta were the runners up.

Goodbye, My Fancy 

Uni\eisity Theater opened its twentieth anniversary year 
with the Homecoming play "Goodbye, My Fancy", by Fay 
Kanin, which enjoyed a long broadway run starring Made- 
lein Carrol. UT's production starred Phyllis Phillips as 
Agatha Reed, a congresswoman who returns to her alma 
mater for an honorary degree and falls in love with the 
college president, played by Bill Zucchero. 

Jim lacavazzo as the LIFE magazine photographer, and 
Nancy Hise as the congresswoman 's secretary were also 
featured. Marcia Hill, as the president's daughter, appeared 
in her first UT role. 

Many hilarious moments were supplied through mis- 
understandings and such, while the remainder of the cast

Fashion Show 

What Christian Dior and Jacques Fath forgot, Women's League re- 
membered, revamped and presented at their Style Show, February 15, 
in the Union Ballroom. 

. It was complete with soft "A-Pretty-Girl-Is-Like-A-Melody" sup- 
plied by Maryelyn Yount, harp, and Peg Barker, piano; and fashion 
commentary read by Margie Owen. 

Models were chosen as representati\es of each sorority and inde- 
pendent women's group. 

Clothes were presented through the courtesy of a well-known 
clothing manufacturer. 

Spring and Summer ensembles were modeled by the girl's includ- 
ing: suits, coats, dresses, sun-clothes, bathing suits and formals. 

The latest fashion trends from Paris and New York were exhibited 
with flourishes worthy of highest-paid magazine models. 

Pat Long was the general chairman of the affair which attracted a 
full house of breathless females and their rather tolerant escorts.

Falling roofs was one of the trifles encountered by 
Alpha Phi when they held their annual pledge presenta- 
tion. The dance, traditionally a Fall term highlight, was 
held iji the Winter quarter due to the capriciousness of 
the roof of the Meyer's Lake Dance pa\illion where the 
All-Greek was held. 

Lhidaunted, and with heads uplifted, the Alpha Phi's 
came through, and introduced their current crop of 
"debs" at the annual affair. Charlie Pickens supplied the 

Baby All-Greek 

Not to be out-done by their acti\e brothers and sisters, 
the Greek pledges held an informal "Baby All-Greek" for 
pledges only. The dance was sponsored by Phi Gamma 
Theta and held in the Union Ballroom January 19.

The foreign students are attending Kent State not only for the educational opportunities afforded here, but also in order to promote 
good will toward a better international understanding through programs of music, speeches and panel discussions. 

While maintaining a very high scholastic standing, the group has been very active in speaking to clubs and organizations 
within this area. The programs sponsored by these joint-groups (International Relations Club and the United Nations Club) are

McGilvrey Hall 

When you can walk into a building from the east on the ground floor and without ascending or descending steps end 
up on the third floor on the west side, it is a unique building. 

And that is exactly what McGilvrey Hall is . . . unique. Built on the side of a hill, three of the four floors are 
ground floors. The hall was built in 1940 by the Public Works Administration. The building was constructed with 
great difficulty on quicksand through the use of a floating foundation. 

Its present use is primarily a science building, although the economics department is also located in the hall. 

The chemistry department is very much in evidence with laboratory after laboratory equipped with hooded 
gas escapes and other modern scientific equipment. The balance room has an atmosphere of exactness with the care- 
fully aligned balances. 

The aroma of formaldehyde greets the visitor as he enters the biological section of the building. Grotesque look- 
ing skeletons and disconnected parts of the anatomy are prevalent. 

This leads to the plant growing room which, even in winter, is well stocked with perennials, annuals and rare 

The physics department reminds one of the present scientific world in which we li\e. Huge electrical apparatus 
set ups are just as confusing to work as they are to look at. Row on row of smooth blacktop experiment tables occupx- 
several rooms. Orderly after hours, these tables are a maze of equipment; pulleys, ammeters, and barometers during 
class time. 

In addition to these scholarly and complicated laboratories, McGihrey hall also houses the Dean of Men's office, 
lockers for commuting students, elevators, stock rooms, and numerous bulletin boards which keep the neophyte scien- 
tists up to date on the happenings of their profession.

Merchant oF 

With two veterans. Charles Kray and Joan Lcquillon, and 
fifteen students making their debut, "Merchant of Venice" was 
presented to KSU students and the pubhc. 

The four-night run, Januar)' 17 through 20, was supported 
by a 31 -member cast including "oldies" such as Dave Roberts, 
Gene Mekler, Si Lee, Carolene Arnold, William Feaster, Chris 
Kolas, Rosemar)' Poor, Charles Presson, John McClar)' and 
Bernard Russi. 

Some of the larger roles were handled by newcomers 
George Paristeris, Dale Brechbuher, Philip Ruffini, Jack Brown 
and Dick Johnson. 

If you can recall the Shakespearean play, you'll remember 
that .Antonio, the merchant of Venice, borrowed money to 
help his friend, Bassanio, win the hand of an heiress, Portia. 
Shylock who loaned the money stated that if the money was 
not paid back within three months, Antonio would forfeit a 
pound of his flesh. Because of a delay in his ships' goods com- 
ing in, he could not pay the mnoey back. Portia then became 
the heroine and reminded him that the contract said nothing 
about his drawing blood when he took his flesh, Antonio being 

Rounding out the UT production were Gus Aivaliotis, 
Jim Alulholland. Don Watt, Lowell Smith, Gertrude HafFner, 
Robert Saxe, Phillip Kodish, Don Eaton, Duane Waddell and 
Bob O'Neill. 

Costumes for the play were straight from Hollywood 
which added an air of professionalism. The rapidity with which 
the seven scenes were changed also added to its effectiveness. 
Credit goes to Wesley Egan and his stagecraft class for this 
set construction. 

Director of the play was Earle E. Curtis, assistant professor 
of speech. Assisting him was Miss Carol Ann Walgenbach, 
instructor of health and physical education, who directed 
dancers Alma Volzer, Jacquelyn Chenoweth, Ruth Nygren 
and Janet Shuman.

Woody Herman and his Herd thundered to the campus on the 
evening of February 10, and pro\ided the dance music for hundreds 
of University couples in one of the top events of the winter quarter 
. . . the Top Hop. 

During intermission at the dance Miss Kent State was pre- 
sented. Miss Geraldine Carroll was chosen in an all university 
student election for this honor. Her attendants were Libby Robinson, 
Cid Dettor, and Pat Ahiglione. 

The dance, in Wills gym, is an annual affair and has come 
to mark the peak of the winter season together with the Militaiy Ball. 

The band was acquired through the efforts of the student coun- 
cil under the direction of the social committee. Headed by John 
Kapioltas, the committee took care of all arrangements including 
decorating the gym to complete the coronation atmosphere and make 
the dance li\'e long after the music had stopped.

Army area, the Reser\'e Officers Training Corps maintains 
this proud record after inspections by officers from many 
headquarters. Giving commissions as second heutenants in 
the Infantry to men who complete the four-year program 
and six weeks summer training period, the Corps now has 
graduates serving all over the world. 

Lt. Col. Frank C. Alandell was selected as professor of 
military science and tactics when Lt. Col. Thomas F. Wall 
retired after a 20-year career.

Corps has beaten teams from University of Michigan and 
Ohio State uni\'ersity. It also finished on top in many 
civilian and army matches. 

The Corps contains two honor organizations. Scabbard 
and Blade national honor society is for first and second 
classmen who maintain a high scholastic record. The 
Perishing Rifles is for the third and fourth classmen for ex- 
cellence in drill.

functions. Scabbard and Blade ser\ed as an honor guard to 
raise the flag at all home football games.

This year's elbow benders could be found practicing on the walk be- 
tween Kent and McGiUery Hall every afternoon during the Fall quarter 
at four o'clock led by Leroy Erickson, head cheerleader. 

The \'arsity squad this year consisted of: Shirley Hartman, Marge 
Lansinger, Jo Harlacher, Phyllis Johnson, Jim xAndrews, Leo Damore, 
Andy Mangione and Tom Oddo. 

The cheering response improved slowly until the Ohio Uni\ersity 
game when pandemonium broke loose and the cheerleaders couldn't be- 
lieve their ears. 

A new inno\ation was introduced this year by way of announcing 
the cheers. Signs were painted by the Booster club with the cheers on 
them and cheer-sheets, containing all the cheers, were passed out at most 
of the games. Noisemakers, too, were distributed to the fans. 

Bright yellow sweaters were added to the cheering ensemble and 
made our "yell" leaders hard to lose at a football game. The cheerleaders 
participated in many pep rallies and led cheers at basketball games also. 

Another crop of Freshman cheerleaders who'll no doubt be seen on 
the varsity squad ne.xt year, made their debut at the "TWIRP Night," 
freshman football game. And very good they were too! 


Leroy Erickson demonstrates a cheer. 

As the football teams leave the field at half-time, 
the KSU Twin bands march onto the field led by 
a debonair drum major and seven sprightly major- 

Although the band is always the big attraction, 
the feature spot goes to the flashing batons and 
the prancing majorettes. 

The drum major is Don Peacock, while his 
feminine followers are Nella Jean Wise, head 
majorette, Joyce Conkle and Pauline Dyrdek, and 
newcomers Sue Ann Hurd, Charlotte Dyer, Jane 
Miller, Marlene Hamblin and Jill Bonvissuto.

ball fans with his baton wizardry hails from 
Ravenna and is an Art major. Nella Jean Wise, 
also from Ravenna, is enrolled in the college of 
education majoring in phys-ed. She also belongs

Baseball coach Matt Resick. 

Kent State university suffered its worst baseball season in 
many a year in the spring of 1950. Losing eight of seven- 
teen encounters, the "Golden Wave" gained some measure 
of fame by setting a new team record for consecutive 
games won by winning eight straight in mid-season. 

The feature of the season was a jaunt through the 
southeastern United States. 

Playing losing games with West Virginia, Fort George 
Meade, and Ouantico Marines, Kent found themselves 
long enough to envelop Potomac State college. 

Lack of hitting was the main deficiency as related by 
Coach Matt Resick but several indi\idual stars did shine 
through the gloom. Prominent among these were Co- 
captain Dick Stevenson, Jim Coll, and Bill Reppa whose 
big bats kept the opposition on the go constantly. Steven- 
son led the way by blasting out a neat .361 average and 
capturing the most valuable player award. 

The other co-captain, Joe Pisani, was the "Flashes" 
defensive ace with a .1000 fielding percentage to his credit. 

Outstanding pitchers were Frank Belgan with a three 
and one record, and a 1.5 earned run average, and Russ 
Stahlman with two wins, no loses and an earned run 
average of LIO. 

Although dropping eight games the Kent Staters did 
play well, with the veterans having the satisfaction of pre- 
paring the youngsters for the seasons to come.

Winning eight of nine encounters tells 
but a small part of the road traveled by 
Howard Morette's charges. Taking a 
fourth in the Ohio Inter-collegiate 
matches, the "Flashes" raised the Confer- 
ence banner over the campus. 

Squad standouts were Loreto George, 
Dick Masterson, Danny Baughman, and 
Jack Bell. These were the top four men 
in the championship race. 

Others deserving of recognition were 
Joe Biros, Chuck Vajner, and Dick Harris.

Rolling to si.x victories in seven of their regular 
season outings and a fourth place in the Ohio con- 
ference meet, the track squad could point to a very 
successful spring undertaking in 1950. 

Featured during the season were four individual 
record breaking performances and a new field rec- 
ord for the 880 relay event. A one hundred point 
effort, and an easy win over Kent's bitter rivals, 
the University of Akron, also were high points of 
the season. 

The lone defeat came at the hands of a strong 
Case squad 65-62; Kent's one hundred point total 
was registered at the e.vpense of Kent's neighbor, 
Hiram College. Akron's cinder squad met defeat 
by the lopsided score of 89-47. 

Record breaking performances were accomplished 
by the following Begala men: Dick Mowery took 
the honors in both the high and low hurdles, John 
Ballenger came through in his fa\'orite e\'ent and 
established a new record in the broad jump; Bill 
Cox placing a new high jump mark in the record 
ledger, and also putting forth a championship first 
in the Ohio conference meet, came through with 
an all time record of 6' 4" in the high jump. 

Other outstanding performers were Dick Eroskey, 
Henry Clark, Dick Mowery, and Jim Bragg who 
collaborated to enter a new time on the books for 
the 880 relay event.

Gazing back upon the year 1950 we reminisce for a 
few moments with thoughts of Kent's football stor}'. As 
the pieces are put together we remember 1950 as a year 
of uncertainty, one in which Coach Trevor Rees found 
on his hands a tremendous rebuilding task. 

After long weeks of drill both on and off the field Kent 
was ready for its first encounter. Morris Harvey provided 
the opposition and all Kent received for its efforts were 
several plane tickets home. 

Not easily discouraged the Golden Wave treked to 
Alliance only to fall before a hard charging Mount Union 
squad, which had yet to taste defeat. Continuing in the 
role of a commuter the "Flashes" found themselves in 
Cleveland facing John "this is our greatest team" Carroll. 
Net result; the worst defeat in the modern era of Kent's 
gridiron history. 

What happened after this humiliating adventure is a 
thing of the past. Filled with spirit and determination, 
State caught fire and proceeded to chew up five straight 
opponents. The highlight of this streak was the wide 
advantage piled up by the "Golden Flashes" against 
Ohio University. Other wins of special interest were 
the hard fought decisions over Bowling Green and Akron

Mancos goes over the goal line for a touchdown during the Marietta game. 

University, the former ending the "Falcons" Homecoming day. Also to meet defeat during this period were Marietta and 
Northern Illinois, both of whom saw their goal lines crossed for a total of 113 points. 

Traveling to Durham, New Hampshire, for the season's finale, Kent State fell before the unbeaten and untied Uni- 
versity of New Hampshire Wildcats in a well played and hard fought game which saw the final margin tally up to only 
six points. 

The New Hampshire game had the distinction of being carried by the Columbia Broadcasting company throughout 
the eastern United States, thus adding more prestige to our ever growing name. 

Perhaps the greatest step forward occurred at the first home game of the season when the dedication of the first section 
of Kent's proposed 30,000 seat stadium took place. Holding 5600 fans, this structure marked the beginning of a broader 
athletic program, one which will see many "big names" adorning the "Golden Flash" gridiron schedules. 

Making the dedication a success the Kent Staters took the field before 7,000 shi\ering fans and turned back Marietta 
College 57-0, to set a new modern scoring record. 

This presented quite a contrast to the day a few short years ago when a rampaging Baldwin-Wallace College Squad 
rolled over Kent to the tune of 118 to on a wind swept field behind Merrill. 

- Outstanding players of this unusual season were Jack Mancos, Dick Pitts, Bob Pease, Mario Nolfi, Jim Betteker, Bo 
Mooradian, Nick Dellerba, Pete Ahern, Paul Powers, Gene 'Vanard, Bill Blankenship, Art Pardee, and Don Radabaugh. 
The first seven mentioned found themsehes being mentioned to several "ALL" squads. An example of this would be 
Pitts, Mancos, and Betteker for All-Ohio. Mooradian added an all- American tag to his All-Ohio effort. 

Dick Pitts and Jack Mancos fell short of Wib Little's all time record of 759 yards gained in one season bv two and 
nine yards respectively. Mancos finished out the season with 60 points and a fourth in the conference. 

Bob Pease was the 1950 captain and operated very efficiently from the fullback slot which was new to him. Nick 
Dellerba rounded out the offensive backfield that came to be known as the 'Tour Ponies," by completing 42 out of 84 passes 
for 574 yards and 6th in the conference standing. Nick also placed fourth in total offense with 882 yards. Jim Betteker 
catching seven touchdown passes came out on top in that department of the Ohio Conference standings. 

As a team Kent captured the Conference net yardage title and placed second in the rushing category with 3274 and 
2470 yards respectively both of which are school records. Concerning passing, the "Flashes'' tossed for 803 yards for their 
nine games. Another new record was the 374 yards net gain average for each game. Point wise it was Kent with 213 markers 
and their opponents 120. Net results of 1950 were five wins and four losses and a feeling of better things to come. 



Opening the 1950 season with unseen potential- 
ities, Kent State's Golden Flashes flew to 
Charleston, West Virginia, to meet Morris 
Harvey's Golden Eagles. 

Played in the rain and mud the contest ended 
with Kent on the short end of a 7-0 score. Kent 
seldom was a factor, the team's followers felt 
sure that lean times were to follow. 

The entire offense which totaled less than 
one hundred yards rushing was racked up by 
Jack Mancos and Dick Pitts. Kent attempted 
five passes, none of which were complete. 

Mancos is hit by a M-H blocker. 

Mount Union 

Traveling to Alliance as favorites, the Golden 
Flashes lost out to Mount Union in the final 
two minutes of a thrill packed, Ohio Conference 
football game. Halfback Jack Mancos was head 
man as he scored two touchdowns. 

Kent scored once in the first period, but the 
Purple Raiders retaliated immediately after 
Kent's kickoff and again in the third quarter 
after blocking a Mancos punt. Kent's second 
T. D. came in the final quarter. Climaxing a 
78-yard drive, Mancos went over from the six, 
putting the Flashes in the lead 14 to 13. 

But Kent's leaky defense let through another 
Raider score on a ten-yard pass to the end zone, 
as Mount Union avenged tliemselves from the 
13-11 beating of 1949. 

A Raider blocker leads the way. 

John Carroll 

It was the "Golden Flashes" third game of the 
1950 season, and the opponent was John Carroll 
university. Going into the game with an out- 
side chance of upsetting the mighty "Blue 
Streaks," Kent State's varsity gridders limped 
into the neutral corner after the contest, licked 
their wounds, and lifted their eyes up toward 
the score board which stated: John Carroll 43— 
K. S. U. 7. 

Completely out played, they met, and were 
defeated before 6500 fans, by what is termed 
the greatest team to ever represent the East 
Cleveland campus. 

Standouts for Carroll were Burrell Shields 
and Rudy Schaffer, the latter kicking 6 out of 
7 conversion attempts. Bright spot for Kent fans 
was Don Radabaugh's interception of a John 
Carroll pass, and his reeling off of 35 yards for 
State's lone score. 

Successful interference by a JC safety man. 


Seven thousand proud K.S.U. fans entered their 
brand new Memorial stadium for the first. time, 
and saw the Golden Flashes down Marietta by a 
57-0 count. 

It was the highest scoring contest of their 
career under Coach Reese. So fans were proud 
of two things; their stadium and their football 
team. It was the first win of the season. 

Jack Mancos was hero number one as he 
ripped off 187 yards and three touchdowns. Dick 
Pitts scored two T.D.'s. Nick Dellerba completed 
1 1 passes with five consecutive hea\es coming in 
the third period. 

Bob Pease makes an end run. 

Ohio University 

Proving that their trouncing of Marietta was no 
hoax, the Flashes rolled on to their second con- 
secutive win of the season by beating Ohio uni- 
versity 35 to 13. They cinched the game by 
scoring three times in the final period. 

A large crowd was on hand to watch Jack 
Mancos gain 123 yards against the favored Bob- 
cat squad, including a 77 yard touchdown sprint. 
Bob Pease was also an important individual, 
picking up 113 yards. Top defensive Flash was 
Don Radabaugh who played a bang-up game at 

Paul Amodio, 10, picks up some help. 

Northern Illinois 

With the season two-thirds o\'er, the Golden 
Flashes swamped an undermanned No. Illinois 
eleven 56-7. Jim Betteker led the attack, crossing 
the goal line three times, while Jack Mancos and 
Dick Pitts each scored twice. Nick Dellerba pilot- 
ing the team from the quarterback slot, threw 
two touchdown passes and ran for another. 

After the Huskies had tied the score at 7 all in 
the first period the Flashes broke the game wide 
open by scoring four times to take a commanding 
35 to 7 half time lead. They were never behind 

Bob Pease, 14, on another run. 

Bowling Green 

Sparkling running by Dick Pitts, Jack Mancos 
and Bob Pease, the brilliant field generalship of 
Nick Dellerba and our fine defensive wall gave 
us the newly traditional "Painted Pig" as the 
Flashes rolled over Bowling Green to a 19-6 
Homecoming victor}'. 

Despite rain, mud and cold weather, the 
triumph started celebrations off to perfection, 
with Pitts, Pease, and Dellerba running 74, 44, 
and 33 yards for consecutive scores. The Falcons 
scored first in the second quarter, but three plays 
later Pitts broke away for the first Kent score, 
immediately followed by Pease's touchdown and 
Dellerba's third period score.

Akron University 

Resuming their traditional battle, Akron and 
Kent met at the Rubber Bowl and literally tore 
each other apart. The final score of 19 to 7 was 
indicative of only part of the action. Although 
completely in command throughout, the 
"Flashes" were faced with their most determined 
foe of the season. 

Kent's offensive load fell to Dick Pitts who 
accounted for 118 yards and one touchdown and 
Jim Betteker who tallied two T.Ds. 

Kent retained the traditional Wheel and ran 
its victories to 6 straight over the Zips.

New Hampshire 

A powerful New Hampshire eleven ended Kent's 
five game streak by dropping the Flashes 13-7. 
This was New Hampshire's first victory over a 
mid-west opponent since the war. 

The game was just as close as the score indi- 
cated. The Wildcats drew first blood, scoring the 
second time they got the ball. They drove 42 
yards to take a 6-0 lead. 

Kent bounced back in the second half to take 
a short-lived 7-6 lead by marching 76 yards after 
the kick-off. The final T.D. was in the last 
quarter when the wildcats went 11 yards to

The 1950-51 version of the Kent State basketball team may well be termed a surprise 
package. Starting a tough season with what appeared to be a none too formidable 
combine of left-overs from last year's squad and a few sophs, coach Dave McDowell 
shaped the men into a winning team. The team played smooth ball to amass a 
season's record of eighteen wins against eight setbacks. 

One look at the scorebooks will show that it indeed was a "team" in the fullest 
sense of the word. At least seven, and more probably eight or ten men appeared in 
ever)' game, and it was not unusual to see every member of the squad in a game. It 
would not be an easy task to single out one man as an individual star. 

George Fulton was probably the finest all-around performer on the team, but 
the diminutive sophomore flash Percy Grenfell also stood out in every game he played. 
Percy led the team in scoring, dropping in a total of 301 points, while George was 
close behind with 286 markers. The two were probably the smallest pair of consist- 
ently high scoring guards to be found in the nation. 

From here on it is hard to make any distinction among the team personnel. John 
Pohlod could always be counted on to play a reliable game at forward. He always 
managed to contribute three or four baskets a game. The same may be said of Hank 
Urj'cki, who was John's running mate for a better part of the season. Also seen at 
forward were Carl Gibson and Bill Bertka. Carl, a newcomer, was not as consistent 
as some of the older boys, but played well in many games. Bill injured his ankle 
midway in the season, but was playing a bang-up game until then. 

Coach McDowell used two centers during most of the year, Mel Bogard start- 
ing the season, then Bib Dilling taking over. Mel started fast, slumped, and then 
picked up at the season's end. Bob Dilling is one of those boys you don't think is 
going to be a ballplayer when you first look at him, but once on the floor it is a differ- 
ent story. A fine defensive man, he was one of Kent's best on the boards all season. 

Larry Grist, Jim Cuppy, and Ben Steele also saw quite a bit of action during the 
campaign. All are sophomores, and worked hard while in action. Larry played the 
most of the three, but all are scheduled for more ne.xt year. 

i ^ 







Percy Grenfell, 4, taps one in against Hillsdale. 

The Golden Flashes 1950-51 fi\'e started the season on the right foot by 
downing a stubborn Pitt quintet 53-49. The Flashes led throughout, 
but were pressed most of the game. In their ne.xt outing the Flashes 
again met stiff opposition at the hands of Ohio Wesleyan, but outlasted 
the Bishops to cop a hard fought 53-52 battle. Journeying to Athens the 
team dropped their first game to a rugged Ohio U. team. 

Next the Flashes went to the Cleveland Arena to meet Arkansas 
State, who also proved a worthy foe as they dropped the K.S.U. five 
60-50. The team returned home to prepare for the forthcoming State U. 
tournament, and mauled an under-manned Adrian five 88-49. In the 
first annual State University tournament the Flashes found the going 
rough as they dropped two games, 60-55 at the hands of Miami's Red- 
skins, and once again falling before the Bobcats of Ohio U. 53-48. 

The Flashes then visited Michigan and came home with a win and 
a defeat. Alma fell victim to the Kent five 76-47, but Central Michigan 
proved to be a tartar as they took the Flashes into camp 69-59. In the 
first Akron U. game of the season, the Kent five played a fast, aggressive 
game to nip a determined Akron team 53-49. This was one of the finest 
games of the year, and is indicative of the close rivalry which exists 
between the two schools. 

Back again at the home court, the AIcDo\vell-men hung up their 
sixth victory by dropping Western Reserve 69-43, in a loosely played 
contest. The Flashes then met a rangy Marquette team and found them 
to their taste as they took a six point decision 56-50. The team returned 
to the Cleveland Arena where they chalked up their biggest win of the 
season o^•er Baldwin-Wallace, who had been a pre-game favorite. The 
final tally was 58-54 indicating the closeness of the contest. 

In the poorest showing of the year, the Flashes still had enough 
class to drub Hillsdale 56-44. Marred by fouls, the game slowed down 
to a snail's pace. The McDowell-men visited Dayton next, and it seems 
as though they should have stayed at home as the Flyers outclassed 
Kent 66-46. This broke a five game winning streak of the Flashes. 
Heidelberg's Student Princes became victim number ten when the 
Kent quintet returned from Dayton. They fell before us by a 70-60 

The Flashes then visited Bowling Green, where the Falcons 
proved a strong foe, winning 85-64. The Flashes returned home to battle 
the Penquins of Youngstown college in the finest game of the year. Nip 
and tuck most of the way, the Flashes dropped Youngstown in a close 
one 57-55. In a dov\'n-state contest the Kent five hung up their twelfth 
win by downing Marietta 60-55. 

Repeating two earlier wins, they beat Western Reserve 87-50, and 
Akron 74-50. A rangy Mount Union squad visited the campus, but 
came out on the short end of a 60-55 count, as Kent notched its fifteenth 
win. This was the last home game of the season. 

The Cavaliers of Xavier pro\ed to be too much for the Flashes to 
handle and we lost 74-57 at the Cleveland Arena. The Staters then 
traveled to Wooster where they topped the Scots' in a fine game 62-57. 
The McDowell-men ended the season in a blaze of glorv as they edged 
the tough St. Francis quintet 73-71 in a thriller at the Cle\eland Arena. 

The Highlight of the season came with the defeat of the Wooster 
five. This win gave Kent an Ohio Conference record of 7 wins and no 
losses, and a tie with Muskingum for the title.

Coach Joe Begala's wrestling crew came through in fine fashion this season by taking eight of ten regularly scheduled meets. The 
Flashes wrestling team was a well rounded squad and featured Joe Klcsterman who finished the season with an unblemished record, 
the second straight year he has done this. 

The team started fast by downing Case fnstitute of lech. Then the groaners traveled to Terre Haute, Indiana where they met 
and defeated Indiana State in easy fashion. 21-8. The Flashes then drew a tartar in Pitt, who proceeded to snap an eighteen game 
winning streak the team had o\'er a two year period. Seemingly in a hdl the team then lost a close match with Bowling Green 14-13 
at the Falcon's home roost. 

After those two defeats the team went on to win the remaining six matches. PI 

host to the Oilers of Findlav college the 

squad repulsed the invasion 29-2. The Bobcats of Ohio uni\ersity came growling into the "Tree City" for the next start and went back 
to their den with a 27-5 defeat tied to their tails. 

Lea\'ing home once more, Joe Begala took his charges to Berea, Ohio to meet the noiseless Yellow Jackets of Baldwin-Wallace 
college. Western Reser^'e's appearance for their annual encounter with the Flashes was to no a\'ail as the victory banner bearing num- 
ber 7 was raised to the tune of 34-0. 

Great Lakes and Rochester Tech. felt the weight of Kent's wrestling legions when they met and were defeated by the identical 
scores of 27-3. 

Standouts on Joe Begala's squad this year pro\ed to be Joseph Klosterman, captain of the 1951 edition and one of the finest 
wrestlers to wear the Blue and Gold. 

Winning the indi\'idual scoring title, Klosterman received points by the following means: fi\'e pins, two decisions, and one draw 
which added up to a total of 33 markers. 

One step behind Klosterman was Bill Fritzsche who despite being a junior has pro\-en himself beyond a doubt a capable successor 
to Joe. Besides being undefeated, a feat identical to Klosterman's, Bill garnered 32 points by \'irtue of four pins and four decisions. 

Following closely behind was Tom Hansen whose specialty was the 130 lb. class which proved fruitful to him to the count of 26 
points which were awarded to him through four pins, four decisions, and two losses. Raymond Sanders came through with nine 
wins by decisions and one loss also by decision. 

Don Morse saw action as a hea\7weight and finished with two pins, five decisions, and two losses, both of which came by way 
of the decision trail. John Redford gave a reputable showing which saw one pin, three decisions, and one tie registered in his behalf, 
with one decisioned defeat to mar his record. 

Les Irwin, Rollie Hinton, Jerry Conway, Herbie Hurd, and Jack Irwin rounded out the squad for this year's efforts. As a team 
Kent State saw action in 80 matches and were victorious in 58 of these while sufTering only 16 defeats and 6 draw's. Total points 
scored were 234 for KSU and 64 for the opponents.

The 1950-51 swimming team 
upheld the school's winning 
ways in athletics by splashing 
their way to eleven victories in 
thirteen outings. 

The team helped make the 
dedication of the Men's Health 
and Physical Education build- 
ing a happy one by downing 
Ohio U. in the season's opener. 
After this contest they went 
on to defeat si.x more oppo- 
nents before they lost to un 
beaten Oberlin. 

After this defeat, the team 
beat Carnegie Tech, but then 
suffered their second loss at the 
hands of Pittsburgh. Two con- 
secutive victories o\'er Wooster 
finished the year. 

The season ended with Kent 
playing host to the Ohio Con 
ference swimming meet in 
which the Flashes finished 
third behind Oberlin and

Ending their second year of inter-col- 
iegiate competition, the 1950 soccer 
squad finished with two \ictories and 
five defeats. Western Reserve and Edin- 
borough State Teachers college were 
the teams that met defeat at our hands. 

Unable to muster enough strength 
against the best small college combines 
in the mid-west, KSU met and were 
defeated in spirited encounters by Ober- 
lin, Grove City, Slippery Rock, Whea- 
ton and Kenvon. 

Standout among the losses is the one 
imposed by Wheaton. Traveling to the 
Illinois college Kent succeeded in push 
ing the Midwestern Intercollegiate 
champions to the hilt before droppino 

Standouts for the squad were Martin 
Danilo, Richard Block, Frank Pichel 
and Steve Bizic. These men were 
selected on the basis of their fine team 
spirit and play. Still not a recognized 
sport, the team members pay their own

The gymnastic squad did not amass a \erv !mpiessi\L' 
record this year, but the record was not indicative of 
their abiHty. What with injuries, and a few players 
not able to compete, the team carried on as well as 
might be expected, and certainly deserves the hearty 
commendation of all. 

It was not an actixe year for the Flashes' gym- 
nastic team either, as they saw action in only three 
regular season matches. In these matches they were 
able to garner one win, that coming in a triangular 
meet with Case and Western Reser\e, a second in 
the Swiss -AALI meet, and were defeated by Ohio 

The reason for the short schedule was that se\eral 
teams had to cancel meets for \arious reasons, and this 
lack of action hampered the team a great deal.

Making its first appearance on the hilltop campus as a recognized 
varsit}- sport, Kent State university's cross-country legions compiled 
a record of two wins in si.x outings. Although long on spirit and 
eagerness they found themselves ori the short end of the experience 

Mustering strength against two of Kent's traditional rivals, Joe 
Begala and his charges proved to all conL'crncd that thev weren't to 
be considered as e\erybody's whipping post. The scores that were 
recorded against John Carroll and Western Reser\e universities 
were unique in that thev were both shutouts. 

Led by Dick 1 Ioo\er who finished in the number seven spot, 
the Flash runners created for themseh'es a fairly successful season 
by winning the third place spot in the Ohio Conference meet which 
was held on a cold, damp day in No\ember of 1950. 

Standouts for the squad in addition to Hoover were such stel- 
lar performers as Ed Duckworth and Glenn Stockhaus. These along 
with Bill Hall, Dick Latture, George Muffley, John Farrell and 
John Wieck made up the nucleus of better things to come. 

Hoover also had the distinction of being named captain of 
Kent's first cross-country team, a position which he pro\cd through- 
out the .season capable of maintaining.

Alpha Gamma Delta sorority was founded at Syracuse Llni- 
versity in 1904, and activated Alpha Nu chapter of Alpha 
Gam at Kent State in December, 1947. The l<ical chapter calls 
220 N. Lincoln street home. 

The Alpha Gam's find their college days full of studies, 
meetings and fun, and try to enter and participate in as many 
campus activities as possible. They won a plaque for 100% 
membership in Booster club, which they added to their col- 
lection. Shirley Horner was crowned queen of the Baby All 
Greek dance, and Alpha Gam Lee Jones reigned as queen of 
the Kappa Phi formal. The Alpha Gams showed their "athletic 
prowess" bv taking part in the I uirp Night touch football 

Socially the Alpha Gam's always manage to keep busy 
with the weekly informal "spreads", a special e\ent e\ery Mon- 
day night. The alumni group entertains the chapter at a 
Christmas party each year, and also hold a spring tea in honor 
of the seniors. Annually, the Alpha Gams dine in style at their 
Feast of Roses banquet in the spring, and also hold a spring 
formal dance. 

The local chapter contributes to the national group to help 
support the Cerebral Palsy di\ision of the National Society for 
Crippled Children and Adults. A local project, undertaken by 
the pledges, is the raffling of handknit Argyle socks. 

In charge of the Alpha Gam home is Mrs. Veva Osman, 
and Miss Marian Darst is chapter advisor.

\lpha Phi sorority was founded at Syracuse university in 

872. Beta Omega chapter of Alpha Phi came to Kent State 

uni\'ersity in June, 1948, and settled at 227 E. Main street. 

After seeing President Ginny Vaughn crowned May Queen 
at last spring's Campus Day festi\-ities, the Alpha Phi's started 
the school year off by winning Homecoming honors. On that 
day the Alpha Phi house was judged best in Homecoming 
house decorations, and Alpha Phi Pat Peterson reigned as 

omecoming Queen. Royal honors at the Alpha Phi house 
are shared by Margie Clark, who was chosen Sweetheart of 
the Alpha Phi Beta fraternity. 

flighlight of the Alpha Phi social year is the All-Greek 
dance which they sponsor annually to present their pledges 
to the University Greeks. This year the formal dance was held 
January 5 at Myers Lake, after being postponed because of 
the great Thanksgi\'ing snow storm. Many other social affairs, 
including fraternity parties and dances, also are held during 
the year by the Alpha Phi's. 

Beta Omega chapter participates in the Alpha Phi national 
ser\'ice project to raise money for Cardiac Aid. 

The Alpha Phi home on Main street is sporting a gleam- 
ing coat of white paint, and also has a new housemother, Mrs. 
Lucille Anderson. Mrs. Carmelita Byrne is advisor to the 
.\lpha Phi's.

Alpha Xi Delta sorority was founded at Lombard college, 
Galesburg, Illinois, in 1893, and some 58 years later came 
to Kent State universit)' in 1947 to reside at 224 Erie street, 
home of Beta Tau chapter. 

The Alpha Xi's returned to school this year after win- 
ning second place honors in the Song Fest and the Campus 
Day parade, determined to do big things. Showing their 
spirit, the group won the Booster club megaphone for the 
loudest cheering, and a Booster club 100% membership 
plaque. Many queens can be found among the Alpha Xi 
Deltas . . . ROT£ Honorary' Cadet Colonel Tory Spring, 
Junior-Senior Prom Queen Joan O'flara, May Queen at- 
tendant Sally Koch. Burr Queen finalist Avis Pinney, 
Homecoming Queen attendant Carol Stilenbauer, and 
Kappa Sigma Freshman Queen Gloria Ranalli. 

Important days on the social calendar for the sorority 
are the Founders' Day banquet held in the spring, the an- 
nual Winter formal and the spring Rose Formal which 
introduces the new pledges. During the winter quarter, the 
traditional Gold Diggers dance is given for the actives by 
the pledge class, and during the month of June a picnic is 
given in honor of graduating seniors. 

Yearly the Alpha Xi's don jeans and wash any dirty cars 
on campus, for a slight fee, to raise funds for the Portage 
School for Retarded Children. The local chapter also assists 
the national group in raising money to help underprivileged 

The Beta Tau chapter is the proud owner of the Achie\'e- 
ment Cup won last year at the Province Day convention in 
Columbus. Both the national president and the proNince 
president visited the chapter house in November.

Alpha Chi Omega sorority was founded at DePauw uni\er- 
sity in 1885, and arrived at 213 Uni\ersity drive to charter 
Gamma Lambda chapter April 1, 1950. 

After a successful first year as Alpha Chi Omegas, the 
local A Chi O's are quite sure that they're really here to stav. 
The girls on University drive are busy making a name for 
themselves on campus by participation in clubs, honoraries 
and all kinds of activities. In March, four musical A Chi O's 
walked off with the trophy in the Barbershop Quartet 

On the social side, the Alpha Chi Omegas' fa\orite e\cnt 
is the Lollipop Hop given winter quarter by the pledges 
for the actives, at which a Lollipop King is crowned. Manv 
fraternity parties liven up the social life at the A Chi O 
house, and spring quarter means the annual formal dance, 
held last year at the St. Francis hotel in Canton. 

The national project of the sorority is aiding the Cerebral 
Palsy Foundation raise money for research. The local chap- 
ter also adopts a needy family for a year, presents them with 
baskets of groceries, and holds parties for under-pri\ileged 

Mrs. Anna Moody is housemother at the newly painted 
Alpha Chi Omega home, and Miss Sarah Dunning and Mrs. 
Weldon "Williams are co-advisors of the chapter.

Chi Omega sorority was founded at the University of 
Arkansas in 1895, and mo\'ed to Kent State in 1947 to 
establish Lambda Delta chapter, their 100th chapter, at 
311 N. Lincoln street. 

Chi Omega began their fourth year as a national sorority 
by taking second place in the sorority house decorations. 
At the same time Chi O Vinnie Mittiga was chosen attend- 
ant to the Homecoming Queen. Other royal honors won 
by Chi O's last spring included Most Popular Woman 
CTretchan Rader and Rowboat Regatta Queen Mollylou 
Bendure. New addition to the Chi Omega trophy collec- 
tion is the All-Sports trophy won last year. 

On the entertainment side, the Chi O's always have their 
social calendar well filled with fraternity parties, dinners 
and dances. An All-Uni\'ersity Reception is traditionally 
given by the group, and winter quarter is the time of the 
Winter Formal. In April Founder's Day is celebrated with a 
banquet, and the Spring formal is the main event in the 
month of June. 

Each year the Chi Omega's sponsor the Duke of Kent 
contest to raise money for some LIniversity project, and they 
also present a yearly award to the outstanding woman in 
social science. The chapter went carolling to the homes of 
aged Kent people at Christmas time as part of Chi O's 
national policy of Christmas kindness. 

Something new was added at the Chi O house this year 
when meals were served for the first time, superintended by 
housemother Mrs. Agnes Thompson. Advisor of the group 
is Mrs. Esther Gray.

Delta Zeta sorority was founded at Miami university in 
1902, and established the Gamma Kappa chapter on the 
Kent campus in April. 1948. This year the Delta Zeta's 
mo\ed into their new home at 244 E. Main. 

Campus participation is nothing new to the Delta Zeta's, 
for they are always well represented in all campus activi- 
ties. The chapter is a 100% booster of the Booster club, 
and placed second in the sorority division of the 1951 Penny 

The DZ's opened their year's social season with a fall 
hayride for their dates, and their event of the year is the 
annual Rose Ball held at Akron Women's City club in 
May. Green Trees inn was the scene of the annual Senior 
Breakfast at the end of the year, and in the fall the chapter 
held a tea in honor of the national travelling secretar)' of 
Delta Zeta. 

Both the national and local DZ's raise money to buy hear- 
ing aids for deaf children throughout the countr)'. The 
chapter also works with the national group to knit layettes 
to be sent to Norway, in honor of Delta Zeta Princess 
A'lartha of Norvi'ay. 

The national Delta Zeta sorority honored Kent State uni- 
\ersity's Dr. Leslie Garnett by naming her to the Delta 
Honor Court this year. 

The Delta Zetas also can boast about their newly painted 
house, their huge sign and their housemother. Mrs. Agnes 
Sammons. Chapter advisor is Mrs. Hallock Raup.

Gamma Phi Beta sorority was founded at Syracuse univer- 
sity in 1874, and nationalized Beta Zeta chapter at 520 N. 
Lincoln street in October, 1947. 

Boasting a majority of speech students among their chap- 
ter, the Gamma Phi Beta's have been represented in every 
production of the University Theater this year. The group 
also boasts a 100% membership in the Booster club, but 
its proudest possession is the Penny Carni\al trophy which 
the Gamma Phi's won this year for the third consecuti\e 

The Gamma Phi's find their social life busy with ex- 
change dinners, fraternity parties, chapter dessert parties 
each Monday night, and date parties. Honoring the fall 
pledge class, the Crescentia Ball is the event of the year 
at the Aurora Country club, and the Carnation Ball din- 
ner dance is held by the Gamma Phi's each spring quarter. 

Each year, a group of underprixileged Kent children are 
feted at a Christmas party at the sororitv house, and baskets 
of food and a Christmas tree are given to a needy family 
by the group also. The chapter also supports their national 
project of maintaining summer camps for underpri\'ileged 
girls where Gamma Phi's are \olunteer counsellors. Another 
national project is the Gamma Phi Beta social serxice 
fellowship awarded through A.A.U.W. 

Advisor to the Gamma Phi's is Miss Laura Mill, and 
Mrs. George Cockill is housemother at the Gamma Phi 
Beta abode. This year the acti\'es redecorated the inside of 
the house and each girl followed her own color scheme.

Pan-Hellenic, a national organization, controls the inter-sorority relationships on the campus. Each of the eight sororities 
is equally represented on the Pan-Hellenic Council and each has an equal voice in determining the Greek policies on the 

The sorority council brought many new ideas to Kent this year and led the eight member organizations through a 
highly successful rush season. For the first time, Pan-Hellenic presented a skit night before the annual rushees Round 
Robin tour, instead of the usual all-sorority tea. The skit night, which was the effort of all sorority women on the campus, 
was a big success, and did an excellent job of informing prospective pledges just what sorority life would mean to them. 

In addition, this year Pan-Hellenic also took the initiative in adding to its activities a Sunday night all-sorority supper, 
in an all out effort to help improve and increase relations between the sororities. 

A rotating scholarship cup is presented annually to the sorority maintaining the highest cumulati\e point average during 
the year. Last spring the trophy was awarded to Delta Gamma, with Chi Omega and Delta Zeta as runners-up. 

Mrs. Margaret Swanson, newly appointed assistant dean of women, has done an admirable job of taking over the ad- 
visorship of the Pen-Hellenic league this year.

Inter-Fraternity Council is composed of the president and one elected member from each of 
the twelve meinber fraternities, and serves as the governing body for all fraternities on the 
Kent campus. 

It is responsible, through its member fraternities, for a positive contribution to the primary 
functions of the University and encourages complete personal development of its members, 
intellectually, physically, and socially. 

To this end, the Council offers as a yearly award, the Inter-Fraternity Scholarship Cup to 
the fraternity having the highest cumulative point average during the fall and winter quarters. 

The spirit of competition is promoted through intramural athletics, trophies being awarded 
to the winning fraternity in nine major sports. An all-intramural championship trophy is 
presented to the fraternity winning the most events and contests for the year. 

The Council further controls the rushing, pledging rules, and also acts as a go-between for 
the fraternities and the administration.

dent; Dr. Charles A. Atkinson, registrar: Dean Raymond E. Manchester, Dean of Men:

Phi Deuteron Chapter 

Founded April 9, 1949 



Alpha Epsilon Pi's Phi Dcuteron chapter was founded 
at Kent State in 1946. After three years of diligent 
work as a local fraternity, it officially affiliated with 
the national fraternity on April 9, 1949. 

First and foremost in the minds of the brothers this 
year is the winning of the Inter-Fraternity-Council's 
Scholarship trophy, which they ha\'e won for the last 
two years. The AE's can gain permanent possession of 
the cup by winning it for three years in succession. 

Not that the AEs are bookworms, for on the social 
side, Phi D has built up the tradition of having a 
"Wild West" and "Gay Paree" party each year. In 
addition are the annual winter and spring formals 
plus countless house parties and exchange dinners 
held throughout the school vear. Other traditional 
events are the semi-annual pledge trips to neighboring 
Alpha Epsilon Pi chapters in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, 
and Pennsylvania. 

Each year the Kent chapter meets its nearest brother 
chapter at Akron university in football, basketball, and 
baseball. A rotating trophv is presented to the winner 
in each sport. 

Within the fraternity, annual awards are presented 
to the Most Valuable Brother, the outstanding foot- 
bail player, and the special Casanova Cup to the 
outstanding lover. All trophies are presented at either 
the winter or spring formals. 

Several AEPi's are now serving their school as stu- 
dent officers in such capacities as treasurer of Student 
Council and as vice-president of Men's Union. 

Three brothers have been selected by national 
honoraries, including Blue Key service; Pi Sigma 
Alpha, political science; and Chi Pi, journalism. 

The Varsity-K club has two brothers who have 
won their letters in track and as manager of the track 
team. Also on the athletic scene, the chapter has men 
on the swimming team and the soccer club. 

Three of the top men on the campus from AEPi 
are president Rick Licberman; past president of the 
Booster club Joe Friedman, and Student Council 
treasurer Sandv Weiss.

Delta Omega Chapter 

Founded 1950 



The installation of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity on 
the 25th of February, 1950, brought to a close a 24 
year service record of Gamma Tau Delta, local fra- 

Long one of the leaders in University acti\ities, 
Delts have served in the past year as president of 
Blue Key service fraternity and Interfratcrnity coun 
cil, as fraternity editor of the Burr, as the business, 
advertising and circulation managers of the Stater, 
and as members in Student Council. In addition 
Delts have been active on the Entertainment and So 
cial committees, SAM, Blue Key, the Choir, WKSU, 
Allocations and Publications Policy committees. Other 
brothers have served in various clubs and national 
honoraries and as writers and photographers for stu- 
dent publications. 

Only four Delts participated in \arsity athletics 
during the 1950 seasons, but two of these were chosen 
as captains of the baseball and track teams and the 
other two were first stringers on the swimming and 
football squads. 

Always a strong contender in Inter-fraternity com- 
petition, the Delts finished a close second last year to 
Sigma Nu in the athletic trophy race. 

Known for their social prestige, the men of Delta 
Tau Delta have a full social calendar. The Shelter 
has always been the scene of many sorority parties, 
exchange dinners, and week-end buffet suppers. 
Traditional social affairs of the fraternity are the 
spring and sumrner formals and this past year saw 
the first Anniversary Ball at Aurora Inn during the 
winter quarter. Serenades and informal gatherings 
round out a full year of good times. 

Three Delts, all chosen to Who's Who in 1950, 
are listed among the leaders on the campus. They are 
chapter president Guy Shelley who also served as 
president of Blue Key ser\ice fraternity and IFC as 
well as Business Manager of the Stater; Dave Brand, 
vice-president of SAM, student founder of the Atomic 
Age course and chairman of the Assembly commit- 
tee; and Dick Morrow, political chairman of the Nu- 
K party 'and member of the political science honorary 
Pi Sigma Alpha.

Delta Upsilon has the distinction of being the first 
national fraternity f(_)unded at Kent, coming onto the 
campus Dec. 28 1948. It was twenty-six years earlier 
that this same DU became Kent's first local fra- 
ternity. Kappa Mu Kappa. 

Noted for their active school participation, both 
social and athletic, DU's compete in varsitv football, 
baseball, basketball, swimming, wrestling and tennis. 

During the past year of inter-fraternity competition, 
Delta LIpsilon tinished in third place in the trophy 
race, winning firsts in swimming, golf and bowling. 

Besides their work on the Stater and the Burr, 
DU's have helped edit the Student Directory and 
have served in Blue Key ser\'ice fraternity. Delta 
Sigma Pi. and VVKSU. 

The big social event of the year is the traditional 
painting of the campus "K" by the sweetheart of 
Delta Upsilon and her serenade by the fraternity 
which serxes to open Campus Day festi\'ities. Last 
year at these same festivities DU won Songfest honors 
of the day in Greek competition. Rounding out the 
social year are the annual Winter and Spring formal 
dances plus a campus serenade each fall and spring 

Each year DU sponsors a Christmas party for 
needy children of the area and monthly the chapter 
donates to the Portage county fund for retarded chil- 

Since 1948, the local chapter of Delta Upsilon has 
helped welcome four new chapters into the national 
fraternity; Dennison, Bowling Green, Buchnell and 
Te.xas uni\ersities. 

This past Christmas the DU's began a new campus 
tradition, an all-University serenade together with the 
Alpha Xi Delta sorority. They plan to make this an 
annual affair in addition to their other general open- 
ing quarter serenades.

Kent State University Chapter 

Founded 1948 



Theta Kappa Phi became the fifth national fraternity 
to come onto the Kent campus on the 3rd of Decem- 
ber, 1949. Before its nationahzation the group had 
been known as the Friars fraternity. 

Operating as a national social fraternity for Catho- 
lic young men, the Theta Kap's have earned the 
reputation of being one of Kent's most progressive 
fraternities. The chapter has made a name for itself 
in this area by bringing two top name bands to Kent 
for concerts, the proceeds of which were donated to 
some University benefit. 

Besides being credited with the largest single dona- 
tion toward the KSU stadium drive, the Theta Kap's 
are very active in extra-curricular activities around 
school. Chapter members serve on Blue Key fraternity, 
the cheerleaders st]uad, radio station VVKSU, Men's 
Union, the Chestnut Burr, and the Daily Kent Stater. 

In the Greek world, the fraternity introduced the 
newly tried "educational program" now in progress 
on the campus, which has replaced the old fraternity 
"hell week" system for pledges. 

In the past two years the chapter has made great 
steps forward socially. Among the highlights of the 
year are the annual Founders Day dinner, the spring 
banquet, a traditional active-pledge dinner and formal 
dances during the fall, winter, and spring quarters. 

At the Founders Day banquet, a scholarship trophy 
is awarded to the graduating senior with the highest 
cumulati\e point average for his collegiate career. 

Helping Theta Kappa Phi maintain its position in 
school leadership is chapter president Lou Spinetti; 
Tom Drouillard, secretary of Blue Key, Penny Carni- 
val co-chairman 1950; and Emil Kemasovich, writer 
on the Stater and Chestnut Burr staffs.

Founded 1950 




Kappa Sigma entered the Kent family of national 
fraternities on June 11, 1950, and the men of Kappa 
Sigma Chi saw the realization of years of hard work 

The "baby" national wasted no time in making 
its mark on the campus scene for it won the coveted 
flomecoming decorations award and saw one of its 
members reign as TVVIRP King all in the first three 
months of the new school year. 

The social calendar of the chapter is lllled from the 
first day of school to the very last one. Among its 
traditional affairs, cxents such as the Sweetheart 
dance, the spring formal, the Founders Day dinner 
and the annual Freshman queen dance rank as high- 
lights of the year. In addition, the Kappa Sig's co- 
sponsor an annual 1 lomccnming queen with Sigma 
Nu fraternity. The queen reigns o\'er the football bat- 
tle for the G. I. jug between Kappa Sig and Sigma 
Nu and presents the winner the cup at a Victory 
dance held in her honor. 

Brothers of Kappa Sig are serving their school in 
Student Council, Men's Union. Allocations commit- 
tee and Elections committee. 

Athletically, the chapter is well supported in \ar- 
sity football, basketball and track. In addition, two 
men serve as managers of the swimming and wrestling 
teams. All of these athletes are lettermen and mem- 
bers of Varsity "K".

E. Summit Extension 


Founded 1950 



Organized in the fall of 1949 by a group of transfer 
students from the Canton branch of KSU, Sigma 
Delta became the newest member of the Greek world 
on Nov. 15, 1950. 

During their first year of fraternity competition, the 
Sigma Delt's won trophies for sponsoring the Junior- 
Senior Prom queen and for a 100% membership in 
the Booster club. They also saw one of their brothers 
selected as the Duke of Kent. And while still a club 
they won a first in Campus Day float competition. 

Sigma Delts serve the university with a brother on 
the Elections committee and two others serving as 
Senior and Sophomore class treasurers. The editor of 
the Chestnut Burr is also a member of Sigma Delta. 
Sig Delts are active players on both the track and 
tennis squads and all members of the chapter arc 
active in inter-mural athletics. 

Socially the chapter is moving ahead fast in the 
entertainment of sororities at house parties and e.\- 
change dinners. Traditional social calendar events in- 
clude the Founder's Day dinner each Oct. 15 plus a 
fall, winter, and spring quarter formal dance. At the 
end of the school year, Sigma Delta alumni return to 
the campus to take on the acti\c chapter in a round 
robin of sporting events. 

A one-year scholarship is avv'arded each year to some 
deserving freshman entering Kent State for the first 

The newly recognized chapter is now in the process 
of organizing plans which they hope will some day 
result in the affiliation with a national fraternitv. 

Prominent Sigma Delt's around the campus are 
Jerry Haynam, president of the fraternity; Murray 
Campbell, Editor-in-Chief of the Chestnut Burr; and 
Bill Detwiler. member of the Student council elec 
tions committee and chairman of the Central Com

Sinma Nu Fraternity was installed on this campus, 
March 19, 1949 after 25 years as a strong local group, 
Delta Phi Sigma. 

Highlight of the past year was the recapturing of 
the all intramural Sports trophy which was returned 
to the fraternity's trophy case for the 15th time in 
the last 19 years. To win this prized trophy, the chap- 
ter won seven first place cups and one second in fra- 
ternity competition. 

More important in another respect to Sigma Nu, 
was the winning by the fraternity of the 1950 Campus 
Day float contest and later in the year the annual 
Rowboat Regatta cup. This the chapter hoped would 
show that athletic ability was not its only achieve- 

In the fall of each year, the Sigma Nu's cooperate 
with Kappa Sigma in sponsoring the traditional 
Kappa-Sigma-Nu Homecoming, which features a 
touch football game between the two fraternities. 
The winner gains a year's possession of the old G. I. 
jug which is presented to the victor by the Queen 
of the day's festivities at the Victory dance also co- 
sponsored by the two fraternities. 

Big nights on the social calendar are the spring and 
winter formals and the annual Scummers Hop given 
in honor of the actixes by the fall pledge class.

Founded 1938 



Founded in 1938 by five men from Akron university, 
the fraternity grew rapidly until the war caused its 
deactivation. Back on campus as an active group in 
1945, the group is now on the threshold of becoming 
a chapter of Sigma Chi national. 

The year 1950 was a good one for Phi Beta Phi. 
It saw the fraternity win the all-University baseball 
championship in both the spring and summer quar- 
ters, plus the inter-fraternity crown in this sport. The 
chapter added to its trophy case the Manchester Cup 
for the best fraternity libraty, a 100% Booster Club 
membership trophy, and topped the year off with a 
second place award in the Homecoming decorations 

Varsity athletic teams have among others an AH 
Ohio football player, captain of the cross country 
track team and a member of the Uni\'ersitv Soccer 

Many Phi Bet's serve their school in Student 
Council, Social committee. Blue Key service fraternity. 
Men's Union, SAM, Delta Sigma Pi, Chi Pi and 
Scabbard and Blade. The Burr and Stater also claim 
Phi Beta Phi's as writers and the Stater's assistant busi- 
ness manager is also a member of the fraternity. 

The organization's social highlights include the 
annual spring and winter formal dances, the Summer 
Frolic, the sponsoring of an excursion for under- 
privileged to a Cleveland Indians ball game and a 
party for the same group of kids each Christmas 
time. Also included are the usual fraternity acti\ities 
such as sorority house parties, .serenades and exchange 

Big men around campus from Phi Beta Phi are: 
chapter President John Kapioltas, who was chosen 
for Who's Who for 1950, and who serves as chair 
man of the Blue and Gold party and as chairman 
of the Social Committee; Parker Voll, business man- 
ager of the Kent Stater; Hal Simmonds, editor of the 
Kent Stater; Leo Damore and Chuck Fletcher, mem

Completing its third year as a Greek letter organiza- 
tion, Phi Gamma Theta is among the youngest of the 
campus fraternities, ha\ing been founded in April, 

Known on campus as a fraternity with a spirit, the 
Phi Gam's started out the new year with an honor- 
able mention in the I lomccoming decorations com- 

Though small in number, they serve their school 
well both athletically and socially ha\ing brothers on 
the football, baseball, track and swimming teams. Phi 
Gam's have also served in activities such as Student 
Council, Blue Key, Men's Union and the Burr and 

Inter-fraternity competition finds the Phi Gam's 
consistently strong, tying for first place in intramural 
swimming and taking a second in their football 
league. Last spring they defeated all comers in win- 
ning the Greek Tug-of-War contest. 

If points were awarded for social prestige, the 
chapter would rate near the top of the list. Annual 
traditional events include the Corduroy and Tweed 
dance in the spring, the Winter formal, the Founders 
Day banquet and a party given for the children in 
the University's Speech and Hearing clinic. The fra- 
ternity also is the sponsor of the annual Greek Tug- 
of-War held the morning of the Rovvboat Regatta. 

Every year the chapter gi\'es a scholarship to a child 
with a hearing deficiency. All expenses are paid for a 
full summer's training in the Speech and Hearing 

The Phi Gam's also ha\'e their own scholarship 
fund which gives financial aid to a member who not 
only needs it, but one who has pro\en himself to be 
worthy of receiving it. 

Campus leaders from the chapter include Phi Gam 
President Ed Merkling: Who's Who in 1950, mem- 
ber of Blue Key and Student Council Elections com- 
mittee;. ]im Andrews: chapter secretary, and member 
of Booster club, Elections committee, Kent Stater 
and Burr staff; and Leroy Erickson, president of the 
Booster club.

A club was started in March of 1948 on the Kent 
campus. Today that same club has grown into a fine 
national fraternity, Phi Kappa Tau, and just recently 
celebrated its second anniversary as a national organ- 

If any fraternity has a goal to strive for, it is Phi 
Kappa Tau. Twice in the last two years the fraternity 
has had to settle for a second place award in the Cam- 
pus Day float competition, and they vow that this will 
be their year for the big win. 

Phi Tau's can be found in competition by attend- 
ing Llni\'ersity athletic e\'ents such as varsity swim- 
ming, basketball and baseball. And in the inter-fra- 
ternity wars the chapter ne\'er fails to put forth a 
good team. The "big " one last year was the fraternity 
swim meet when the Phi Tau's took first place honors. 
This year during the sporting season, the chapter 
hopes to add a few new awards to their growing 
trophy case. 

Inter-fraternity Council, Men's Union, Blue Key 
service fraternity and many \arious clubs and hon- 
oraries all have Phi Kappa Tau's members serving 
their University. 

The fraternity's big social affairs of the past year 
were the Founder's Day banquet at the Acacia Coun- 
trv Club, the annual Spring formal, and the tradi- 
tional Dream Girl formal dance at which the Sweet- 
heart of Phi Kappa Tau is queen for a night. Every 
two years these locally chosen queens are entered into 
national competition at which time a convention com- 
mittee chooses the national Sweetheart of Phi Kappa 

Outstanding leaders of the fraternity who also have 
time for campus activities are chapter President, Bill 
Ryan, a member of Blue Key service, IFC rushing 
chairman, and Chuck Irish, secretarv of the chapter, 
member of the Elections committee and of the Booster 
club and Blue Key fratcrnitv.

Beta Mu Chapter 

Founded 1949 



Phi Sigma Kappa became the seventh national fra- 
ternity on Kent's campus in Alay, 1950. It had its 
beginning as the Tau Kappa club back in 1947 and 
was recognized as a local fraternity in 1949. 

Most outstanding event of the past vear was the 
iraternity's Nationalization formal at the Akron 
Women's City club following the installation of the 
chapter into Phi Sigma Kappa. 

Though comparatively young, Phi Sig is fast be- 
coming a very active group with its members serving 
such organizations as SAM, Phi Chi, Blue Key serv- 
ice and the Kent Stater. In addition the chapter 
boasts the treasurer of the Junior class and members 
chosen by Who's Who in American Colleges and 

In athletics, the swimming team and the baseball 
squad hive athletes who are Phi Sigs and all mem- 
bers of the chapter take an active part in the inter- 
fraternity competitions. Proudly the chapter points to 
its second place award in the Inter-Fraternity Council 
Scholarship trophy. 

Discounting their many regular fraternity social 
functions, the Phi Sigs consider their annual "Snow 
Ball" dance as the social highlight of the year. Still 
another important affair is the fraternity's annual 
Founder's Day banquet and the selection of the Phi 
Sigma Kappa "Mtwnlight Girl." This Queen is en- 
tered in the national fraternity's beauty contest. The 
winner chosen at the national con\cntion reigns as 
Queen of Phi Sigma Kappa. 

Last year marked the beginning of another tradi- 
tion, when the Phi Sigs sponsored an entrant in the 
Soap Box Derby. A 12 year old Kent boy was the 
first to wear the colors of Phi Sigma Kappa. 

Prominent members of Phi Sigma Kappa in and 
around campus are chapter President John Crowley; 
Vice-President John Collins, a member of Blue Key, 
new editor of the Stnter, a member of Student Coun- 
cil and treasurer of Chi Pi; and Mark Commons, the 
treasurer of tlie Junior class.

Sigma Theta Epsilon. a religious-social fraternity, was 
formed in February 1949, under the direction of the 
national office of Delta Sigma Theta. On June 4, 1949, 
the national president installed the Sigma chapter with 
Ijwenty-four charter members. 

This name was ofhcially changed to Sigma Theta 
Epsilon in September 1949, although it retained its 
Sigma chapter designation. Pledges are initiated in De- 
cember and Alay of each academic year. 

Big event of the year for the Sigma Theta Epsilon's 
was the "Sweetheart's Ball" held in February. Also on 
the calendar was the annual dinner-dance held on lune 4

Finishing its eighteenth year, the Industrial Arts 
club once more achieved its purpose for existence. 
Major e\'ent of the year was the sponsorship of the 
Industrial Arts Hobby show which was held in 
Will's Gym. The show featured exhibits of soap- 
box derby racers, telescopes, pictures, Indian crafts, 
models, and mineral collections. 

Vocational education speakers, a banquet for 
graduating seniors, parties, and the annual picnic 
at Virginia Kendall park filled in the members' 
time when projects were finished. 

The club was founded in 1932 for the purpose 
of furthering the interests and abilities of those 
students enrolled in the industrial arts courses. It 
has been acti\e in this field since its founding, 
sa\'e for wartime inaction after which the club has 
steadily built up membership and activities.

United Christian Fellowship 

The United Christian Fellowship is ii campus religious or- 
ganization which welcomes all Kent State students to share 
its year-round program of work, worship and study. 

Sponsored by eight Protestant denominations— Baptist, 
Congregational, Disciples of Christ, Episcopal, Evangelical 
and Reformed, Evangelical United Brethren, Presbyterian 
and Universalist— the UCF has the Re\erend A. Laten 
Carter as minister to students. 

A board of trustees, composed of 36 ministers and lavmen 
from Kent and other cities in northeastern Ohio, together 
with professors and administrators from the University, 
supervises the policies, personnel and funds of UCF. Dr. 
Robert I. White, dean of the College of Education, is presi- 
dent of the board. 

Fostering the expression of religious \alues in all areas of 
Uni\ersity life, helping students grow in relationship with 
the Church of Jesus Christ, and encouraging active partici- 
pation in Kent and home churches, are the main purposes of 
the group. 

Wednesday afternoon "Coffee Hour" at Christian Fellow- 
ship House attracts fifty to sixty students for informal dis- 
cussions on topics ranging from "How to Understand the 
Bible" to "Getting Along with the Other Fellow." 

Cost suppers, with menus devised, supplies purchased, 
and food prepared and served by UCF members, are part 
of the Sunday e\ening activities every week. The fellowship 
dinners are followed by a program, worship service, and hour 
of recreation to complete the weekly UCF meeting. 

High points of the UCF year for its members are the 
Retreats each quarter, a Commitment Ser\ice in December, 
and Christmas and Easter services. Members participate in 
local church services, either by conducting the entire ser\'ice, 
singing in the choir, or attending services. 

During the Fall Retreat ninety students spent a week-end 
at Camp Chibiabos near Doylestown, Ohio, working, wor- 
shiping and studying under the guidance of Dr. Robert 
Bonthius, professor of religion at Wooster college.

The Beta Pi chapter of the international professional fraternity. Delta Sigma Pi, 
was founded in 1942, and consisted primarily of upper division students. A big step 
forward was taken by the Beta Pi Chapter last fall when the chapter mo\ed into its 
own house on Main Street. 

The pledge programs begin in the fall and winter quarters. The requirements 
for membership are enrollment in the School of Business Administration and a 2.5 
cumulative average. For the first time, the Delta Sig's entered the Homecoming Day 
contest as well as several other comj>etitive activities. 

TTie purposes of this fraternity are to foster the study of business in universities; 
to encourage scholarship, social activity, and the association of students for their 
mutual advancement by research and practice; to promote a closer affiliation between 
the commercial world and students of commerce, and to further a higher standard of 
commercial ethics and culture and the civic and commercial welfare of the com- 

The group is moving forward under the able leadership of Gerald Scott, head- 
master, assisted by George Reeder, Norman Beardman, William Sweeney, Kenneth 
Wertz, John Ingram, Paul Neuhann, John Rinderknecht, John Broos, and Vincent 
Chiarucci. Mr. W. Harold Martin is the advisor. 

During the few years the Beta Pi chapter existed at Kent, it has sponsored many 
outstanding speakers. Red-tape at registration time is simplified in the College of 
Business Administration through the cooperation of this fraternity.

Former or present connection with the i-couting mo\e- 
ment. a 2. accumulatixe pdint a\erage and a desire to 
ser\'e the Uni\'ersitv and communitv are the require- 
ments for membership in Alpha Phi Omega, national 
sen'ice fraternity. 

The Kent chapter was founded as the APO in 
March, 1941 with the purpose of ser\ing and co-ordinat- 
ing ser\ice projects within the Llni\ersity. 

Service projects ha\e included keeping bulletin 
boards clean, sponsorship of the Uglv Man contest. Bar- 
bershop Quartet, a hot-rod raffle, and the Hot-rod Hop. 
Current long range project is the erection of a Victory' 
Bell on Rockwell Commons behind the Union. 

Alpha Phi Omega ser\es as a helping and sponsor- 
ing organization rather than a competing one. Its mem- 
bers include students from all facets of university life. 



Party caucuses . . . governmental reform . . . and 
the question of who should run for what post 
occupies the leisure thoughts of the "whips" of the 
recently organized Nu-K political party. 

The party was organized after the spring elec- 
tion of 1949 determined to contribute their part 
to campus politics. Aware of the wrongs of one 
dominate party, the Nu-K advocates attempted to 
establish a wholesome two part}' system. 

In order to establish themseh'es as a tightly knit 
organization they formed a constitution which 
anounced their principles. Convinced that the in- 
dependent student is not sufficiently represented on 
campus, Nu-K is pledged to reverse this situation. 
The party goes outside the organization to find 
candidates. Their platform is established on the 
belief that politics is ever^'one's job; not just the 
business of a chosen few. 

Nu-K is presently composed of nine organiza- 
tions: Alpha Gamma Delta, Alpha Xi Delta, and 
Delta Ciamma sororities; and Delta Tau Delta, 
Delta LIpsilon, Sigma Delta, Phi Gamma Theta. 
Phi Kappa Tau, and Theta Kappa Phi fraternities. 

The officers are: Richard Morrow, chairman; Ed- 
ward Merkling, vice-chainnan; Emil Kernasovich, 
treasurer; and Flo McNaughton, secretary. 

Still a baby as far as campus politics are con- 
cerned, yet firmly entrenched on campus, this party 
is growing in stature and now enjoys a prominent 
position in University politics.

This organization made its first appearance on 
campus in 1936, but in 1940, it disbanded to form 
an all-greek group. Blue and Gold, as a party, did 
not reappear on the political scene again until the 
spring of 1946. 

A powerful Student ^Association had united with 
the coalition party in the meantime to control 
campus politics. 

Within the ranks »f this merger was the material 
from which the present Blue and Gold party was 
wrought. It was literally "thrown together" for the 
May student council election in 1946. 

Four formerly unaffihated greek organizations 
joined the Blue and Gold party in a pre-campaign 
revision scheme October of 1947. Hereafter Blue 
and Gold ne\er lost an election. 

When the Blue Star party was dissolved follow- 
ing the contro\'ersial spring election of 1949, there 
was not a single organized group strong enough to 
cope with E.G. power. 

Eleven greek letter fraternities and sororities form 
the membership of this party; Alpha Chi Omega, 
Alpha Phi, Chi Omega, Delta Zeta, and Gamma 
Phi Beta sororities, and Alpha Epsilon Pi, Alpha 
Phi Beta, Kappa Sigma, Phi Beta Phi, Sigma Nu, 
and Phi Sigma Kappa fraternities. 

The policy of the Blue and Gold party has been 
to better campus politics through placement of 
capable indi-\'iduals. As part of their program, the\ 
hope to put Kent on the map with the issuance of 
athletic scholarships.

The American Association of Commons clubs was 
founded nationally April 23, 1921. On January 22, 
1948, the Kent State Commons club was organized, 
and one vear later became associated with the 
national organization. 

With headquarters at 320 South Lincoln, the 
ACC's pride themselves on their "open-door" mem-
